I recently tried to defragment my computer. I am running windows XP Pro on an IBM ThinkPad T40, Pentium M 1.8 ghz, 512 Ram, 80G harddrive. When it was "done" it gave me a message saying it couldn't defragment a bunch of them, and there was still a large protion of red showing in the expected space area. I found this interesting considering my username is the only one on the laptop and it is set as an administrator. I restarted in safe mode and logged in under Administrator and was able to run disk defrag and it cleaned up all of the files. Any ideas on why i was unable to defragment completely under my user? Also, i've found in my event log that Symantec (my antivirus) is unable to access a whole bunch of files when it runs under my same user name.
If anyone has any ideas they are most appreciated.
