Defragmented system files

by k5ox / November 9, 2006 10:20 PM PST

I am using Inspiron 9300 Laptop, with 60Gb HDD, 1Gb Ram. I am using diskkeeper defragmentor. Although I have 20Gb free, it shows the system files in a highly defrgamented state. Is there a way to reduce this?
Thanks in advance.

That it was an annoyance to those that looked at it and not any measurable speed loss.

Thanks for your reply, Bob.
I am not sure if it is possible to increase free space beyond 20Gbs.

For me I can since I could move something big to an external

In reply to: hmm..

Then run the defrag on boot option.

But I no longer bother since it's only an annoyance and no gain.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
