defragmenting
I try to defragment drive D, but there isn't enough unused space to run
effectively.
It needs 15% unused. I have 7% unused.
I have already ran disk cleanup.
Now what?

Re: defragmenting
Now you have to manually delete what you can or backup little used
information to CD/DVD disks, or an external hard drive, and then delete the
original information off of drive D:

Another alternative is to add another hard drive and move some information
from drive D: to the new hard drive.

It's the same principal as packing a suitcase for vacation. If everything
you want to take doesn't fit - what do you do?

Re: defragmenting
Is this a Factory Restore Partition? [A small partition (~10GB, or so) to enable
you to restore your computer to a factory shipped condition?] If it is, there
is no need to defragment it and you should just leave it alone. If you alter
it, unless you made Restore DVDs, you will not be able to restore your computer
to a factory shipped condition.

Hi Naturesmeds,

See step 10 in this tutorial for how to do a defragmentation with a
drive that has low space.
