    My disc defragmenter tells me that the 'system' is 100% fragmented and needs optimization. When clicking on 'optimize' it starts to analyze then immediately drops out leaving it with the '100% fragmented' notation again.
    Disc (C:), Recovery (D:) and HP_Tools (G:) all optimize without problems 'tho Disc(C:) can sometimes be very slow.
    Help ! How can I defragment the 'System'

    If all your disks are defragmented, then what exactly is fragmented?

    Hi The only drive that you need to worry about is your C drive. Are you using a 3rd party defrag program?? I personally use the defrag tool provided by windows.
    This is what you should see if you use the windows tool! It can be set up to run on a schedule and you won't have to worry about it.

    May be there is not enough contiguous free space to complete the defragmentation. Free up some space and try again.
