    system drive in optimise drivers always stays at 4%


    Hi guys!
    My computer was running fine until January but suddenly I open optimisation tool to check if everything is all right but i find out that it stays on 4% whenever I open the optimisation tool and when I click on analyse then it says 9% fragmented but when I click on optimise it stays at 4%. I also had ISO file problem but i solved that and now today, I opened optimise tool and it now shows 9%. If any of you have any idea about this then please share!

    Do you happen to have a very large file (possible large backup/ disk image etc.) located on that hard drive. Sometimes low levels of installed and available memory coupled with an attempt to defrag a very large file can cause extraordinary slowdowns.

    One option that might be worth trying. Temporarily install a different defragmentation program (Auslogics DiskDefrag Free) and defragment that drive. If and after that works the windows optimize function should function without an issue.

    I have used http://www.piriform.com/defraggler on my HDD systems and it has a feature that after you do an Analyze it has a choice to list the files and the number of fragments. It will also let you select individual files that you want to defrag.

    Yah! but I think it's nothing to do with HDD because it's another drive(System Drive)which is fragmented. However I am not sure!

    HDD is a generic name for a mechanical drives as opposed to the newer SSD's. Unless you have a SSD your System drive will be a HDD and you can look at ALL your drives if you wish.

    It didn't work!! when I tried to defrag it, it defraged all the files but again when I analyse it just after the de fragmentation process then it again says fragmented 1% and when I tried to defrag individual files which were listed then after 80% it says "defrag aborted". any suggestions????
