Hp Pavilion a1620n, XP Edition. I Can't defrag my recovery drive.

Hp Pavilion a1620n, XP Edition. I Can't defrag my recovery (D:) drive. My last antivirus warned me I needed at least 15% free space in this drive and I only have 4% free space available. When I tried to defrag this drive, it stated I need 15% free space to efficently defrag. It's solution to try deleting some "unneeded files" and try again. Help, MS

One thing you might try is to do a Clean disk, (same place as disk defragmenter) and when the widow opens put a check mark in each of those boxes...run it -they are duplications of duplications,,you need none of it. Let it run reboot then try the defrag.
-OR-
If you have room on your C drive copy several large programs take them off of D and send them to C. If you have a DVD/CD Burner you can copy some of your largest files to disc and remove them from D so you can defragment the drive. And too if you posses a pen drive or flash drive do the same...

This should do it, Please leave rating, thank you

Unfortunately you will need to do exactly what it states, which is free up some space. Defragging a drive requires there to be an ample amount of "swap space" available so that it can move files into that 15% of space while it rearragnes the placement of other files and puts them back in an order which will provide faster access to the files after the defrag is complete. being that it is your D: drive, can't you just move some files to your C: drive to make enough space for the defrag??

Please be sure to rate this solution.

Regards,

Joe

Her machine may have a hidden partition on the hard drive that will restore the system to factory condition, without wiping out her data. Read the following carefully (PDF document).

Hi. I cannot defrag D Recovery Drive due to lack of space.


You do NOT need to defrag the recovery partition. The contents of that partition are most likely in a compressed form, and in any case, unchanging, so do not require a defrag. It's a good idea to leave the recovery partition absolutely alone.

For future reference, if you need to defragment a normal partition in low space conditions, try something advanced like Diskeeper 2008. Diskeeper is the best and most powerful defragmenter, and can defragment drives with even less than 5-10% free disk space. By comparison, the windows defragger requires atleast 15%, and yet does not defrag system files.
