    You mean the green, unmovable files? Those can't be defragmented because they are being used by the system while it's running. You can download a program like Diskeeper Pro to do an offline defrag, which means those files are defraged when you boot, before Windows startup.

    not all files will be defragmented on one defrag.

    i suggest using Diskeeper as rcrockett suggested

    you can just set it to defrag at a sertain time and you can let it defrag every night. I do. At first not all files will be defragmented, but after 5 defrags, you should see little or no red spots
