It won't complete the defrag. Does that mean the hard drive is going bad? The laptop is very slow, hard drive spins a lot.


You definitely should back up your files before trying to solve the issue. To defrag first check if you have enough free space and if some programs are running that are interrupting the task. Run a diskcleanup and chkdsk. The Windows defrag program will not defrag under less than 15% free space and also sometimes if other programs write to the disk while its running. So download the trial version of a reliable commercial defragger and try. (They will defrag in less than 5% free space and run in the background).

Hello,
Manual steps to run Chkdsk at the command prompt
Click Start, and then Run.
In Open, type cmd, and then press ENTER.
Use one of the following procedures:
To run Chkdsk in read-only mode, at the command prompt, type chkdsk, and then press ENTER.
To repair errors without scanning the volume for bad sectors, at the command prompt, type chkdsk volume:/f, and then press ENTER.
Note If one or more of the files on the hard disk are open, you will receive the following message:
Chkdsk cannot run because the volume is in use by another process. Would you like to schedule this volume to be checked the next time the system restarts? (Y/N)
Type Y, and then press ENTER to schedule the disk check, and then restart your computer to start the disk check.
To repair errors, locate bad sectors, and recover readable information, at the command prompt, type chkdsk volume:/r, and then press ENTER.
Note If one or more of the files on the hard disk are open, you will receive the following message:
Chkdsk cannot run because the volume is in use by another process. Would you like to schedule this volume to be checked the next time the system restarts? (Y/N)
Type Y, and then press ENTER to schedule the disk check, and then restart your computer to start the disk check

Chkdsk gets stuck for windows XP on restarting


Try running these two free programs, Diskcheckup and SmartDefrag. (Just copy the addresses here and paste into your address bar.)

Diskcheckup reads your hard drives and tells you if there are errors, or it reads "OK" in a wide variety of categories. http://www.passmark.com/products/diskcheckup.htm

Once that is done, download and run SmartDefrag. This program, also free, will constantly defrag your system while you are working, but will not interfere with what you are doing. It will also mark any bad areas on your drives to be avoided by the system.

Can't get to disk defragment my laptop



How To: Fix Windows Built in Defragmenter

· First open up a Command Prompt, this can be found at:
Start -> All Programs -> Accessories -> Command Prompt

· Change into your windows\system32 directory. Your windows directory will be either windows or winnt. Type:
cd \windows\system32

Register the defrag components, by typing:
regsvr32 dfrgsnap.dll
regsvr32 dfrgui.dll



At this stage, you may find the defragmenter works. If not, there is one more step you can do.

Using Windows Explorer browse to your windows\inf folder.
In there you will find a file called
dfrg.inf right click this file, and select Install.

If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe
