^ that doesn't work either, keep getting the error: Building File List Failed.

Could it be because of my vista gui?

I use Power Defragmenter in PowerMode (sounds cheesy, I know, but it is true). It is by the SysInternals folks, and I have used it on Win95, XP, Vista, and Vista 64-bit. Seems to do the job...

(or just google for "Power defragmenter"

Also, this thread from June apparently never really had any resolution, thought the Defraggler folks appeared to be "working on it".

Personally, I'd find a new tool that works. Defrag is defrag. If it runs to completion and defrags all it can, any tool is fine.

Thank those Sys Internals guys...those guys have known their Windows since NT came out, and they have given out a TON of utils for free. Just glad to have helped, bro!
