You should run it occasionally. All drives get errors from time to time.

Also, how long do you wait to see if defarg will continue? It defargs in memory first and there will appear to be no activity while it "thinks", usually around 10%. Then it will start defragging on disk.

For the most effective defrag, shut down as many programs and services as you can. I even shut down explorer so it, too, can be defragged, and then restart it with Task Manager after defrag is done.

Here's a batch file for shutting down services. It may not include all that you have. It may include some services that you don't have.

StopServices.bat

Use a global replace of "start" for "stop" to start them back up again.

You can also use a program called "SmartClose" that can be configured to shut down all your services and programs and then restart them when you want.
