How much space is required for defragment to run RRS feed

  • Question

  • I keep getting a notice that the defrag process won't do my c drive because of lack of space. I have a total of 111gb of hard drive space and 12.6 free. Please let me know how much free space I need to run the defragment process.

    Thank you

  • In Windows XP, Defrag requires 15% space free. So, in your case, it needs to have about 18 Gigs free.

  •  Thanks for the help, Defragment is running now.  It was good to know how much I had to clean.  Thanks again.
