    I cannot defragment my captured video files. Windows xp pro keeps skipping my files. Does anyone know why they keep being skipped? If I uncheck the "read only" box will defragment and mess up my file?
    If anyone could help me out I'd appreciate it.
    Thanks,
    Kyle

    Don"t use the Windows XP defragmenter or any defrager built into windows...

    The one I use that works great and is super fast is called "VoptXP 7.21"....

    Go a search on Google and download it and see if it works better...Cheers

    Minion,
    I downloaded the defrag program and used it. It still skipped my captured files. I use Winfast to capture. It appears to skip the WinFast Work Area on my c drive. Is there any problem with defraging video files??
    Thanks,
    Kyle

    Well maybe your Video files don"t need to be Defragmented?? if all of the data for the video files is all on one solid data block on the Drive then the files aren"t fragmented and would not need to be Defragmented.....

    Not certain on this - but does the file size compared to remaining space on the hard drive affect defragmentation ? I know the theory is it only does blocks - but ... ??? !!!
