Defragmenting of hard drive. RRS feed

  • Question

  • In Tune Up I am told that an error has prevented the defragmenting of the hard drive. What is this error, and how can it be overcome ?

  • It is possible that there are bad sectors detected on the disk surface, which will prevent Defrag from working. Are you running XP or Vista? Open Windows Explorer, right click on the icon for your disk drive and select Properties.

    Click on the button for Error Checking. Select both options. Upon completion, either run Tune-up again from OneCare or return to the Disk Drive Properties and select Defragment Now.
