    i keep getting you should defragment this drive all the time

    i have tried formatting, tried different xp discs

    tried Gigabyte Dq6 & M3a32 MVP Deluxe motherboards all with latest bios

    both my 1tb samsung f1 and my 500gig samsung f1 do the same

    does it only with windows xp

    any suggestion's?

    I don't have an explanation, but if it's not giving you problems I wouldn't worry about it.

    you need partition magic or similar software to do an offline defrag

    You can run a different defragmenter to possibly put your mind at rest. This is the free lite version of the world-reknowned Diskeeper, a 12MB download:It's free and from another forum I'm a member of. Good luck, hope ya figure it out!:toast:

    :laugh: No see a Psychiatrist, cause they can write ya a prescription!:laugh:

    IMO, it is a bug, and checking your sectors, etc, should reveal what's up........

    Hmmmm, I looked that error message up and here's what I found.....<click me>

    Apparently it's a known issue and as usual M$ offers a "weak" workaround, but a workaround nonetheless... Maybe it's not your sectors after all!:)
