I set my computer to defrag the other day, and when it was done, the report dialog read, "Some segments could not be defragmented."
Well, I want to know, "WHY NOT??!!" What's up with that?
Can someone please explain this in as non-technical a manner as possible?
Defragmentation does that often when certain files cannot be entered or defargmented.
Hmmmm....scratching head, and wondering what kind of files those might be....surely not any user-created data???
I was thinking something along those lines, but since the graph after the fact still shows fragmented areas, I'm wondering how system files would get fragmented in the first place???? Surely, they are there prior to anything else that gets installed???
They are usually files requiring the, in terms for you, requiring the owner of the computer to allow entry or else they are main files which keep the computer running and nobody may enter. Unless you are repairing the computer.
I'm not a big fan of defragmenting my drives. Years back I had a power outage half way through the process and lost everything.
