Defrag file that WON"T DEFRAG!!

Every time i defrag my computer i get this same file that it says, "cannot be defragged".

Here's what it says.....

Fragments = 120 File Size = 1.70GB

Documents and Settings/Local Settings/Application Data......

Then it kinda peter's off where i can't read it.

Any Advice?

What OS are you running? Have you tried running Scandisk first?

Windows defrag kinda sucks if that's what you are using. I like to use Executive Software Diskeeper. The version I'm using is a bit older but I find it defrags much better than the typical windows stuff. I just set it up to defrag my computer at night.

You can download a free trial here.

If it can't defrag the file usually that means the file is in use. At 1.7 gigs I can't imagine what file it would be that you would use during a defrag. At that size its most likely a long video file.

it could be because you have a background application running that is interfering with the defrag.

run a scandisk and make sure all app's are closed.
