Hi Rusty
Works good in the safe mode. Wonder why it won't work in the other.

Possibly some scheduled maintenance program that updates before the defrag is finished. When that happens the defrag has to start all over again.

Good to see you were able to defrag in Safe Mode. wave

Definitely a background process running in normal mode that is preventing you from defragging the hard drive. Safe Mode allows you to do it because only minimal items are installed (i.e. minimum drivers, antivirus programs disabled, etc) and the background process that was running was not one of those items. You may have a trojan program running. It could be anything really.

Noticed this thread yesterday and since I have had the "scandisk has tried 10 time message" for over a year now figured I would try it.
I rebooted in DOS mode and scandisk ran happydance
Then I ran defrag in regular mode and that ran too happydance
Thanks to all of you for the great advice. laugh
