Question Defrag not really working fully

Hi guys,

Long time no see, hope you all had a great Christmas Holiday and wish all of you a safe and prosperous New Year.

Now on to my strange occurance, I had not defraged my "old" computer (PB R500, 64Mb Ram, Intel MMX 200MHz processor, 4.3GB HD, Win98SE) in three months.

I know, I's a Dino, but I still like it and it's soooooo trustworthy and slow....LOL.

Anyway, in the past when defragging using the Win Defrag, I defragged while watching the "Details" at least three times until it just ran clean in a minute or two never had a problem.

NOW here's what's happening, after each defrag completes with each successive defrag it is still fragmented and I can NOT get a clean defrag although it completes and say's it is.

I did a "through" scan both with Win and with Norton Utilities and drive has no bad sectors or errors.

Question? any of you know of a better defrag utility that I can download online?

Any ideas??

Thanks in advance as usual for your sharing of your great knowledge.

If you have Norton Utilities,

why not use the "Speed Disk" program that came with it? It's worked well for me.

My 1.5 cents worth!
