    Hey guys new poster here, nice to meet all of you~

    I have a problem with my disk defragmenter. It will always stall on one of my drive, I just recently built this computer and there is only about 5% memory usage on this drive. It's a Seagate 320GB. My WD Raptor X defragments just fine but when I try to defrag my Seagate it just stalls at random percentages. So far it stalled at 18% & 25%. I was wondering what the problem was.. Thx in advance~ :toast:

    Google Auslogics Disk Defrag, it does a much better job of degragmenting fragmented hard drives.

    if its really stalling , i think its something 2 do with the defragment service
    stopping. u can manually restart it under administrative tools . r u sure it
    isnt just taking ages with really big files ? like how long does it stall ?
