Having problems with your Dell Dimension 3100 PC Desktop ?

Tried a few defrag programs and some of the files won't defrag

\015 Including outlook.pst.\015

Answers :

Try using the free AusLogics Disk defrag program (http://auslogics-disk-defrag.en.softonic.com/) If that does not work, you can download a free trial of Perfect Disk Defrag at http://www.perfectdisk.com/home. This program allows you to not only defrag large files, but also consolidate free space, schedule when you want to defrag, and select the files you want to defrag. These are two of the better defrag programs out there. Auslogic also makes a good registry defrag located at http://www.auslogics.com/en/software/registry-defrag/download. They all work great and are good to have. I use them.
Here is a link for Power Defragmenter, a gui that uses Sysinternals contig,exe to defrag the drives. There is a link for contig.exe on the same page.

http://www.softpedia.com/get/System/Hard-Disk-Utils/Power-Defragmenter.shtml

It is quite user friendly. When you get to the mode screen, I would use the last one. It will take a while, depending on the condition of the drive(s).

The pst files may be encrypted and the larger one should be broken up into smaller pieces.

Good luck and please let me know how it goes.

I am trying to burn a DVD that is 1 hour and 49 minutes long and it will not burn correctly. On a DVD-RW it only recorded just a small amount at the beginning and also had music in the background. I tried a DVD-R and it would not work at all. It also seems that the video file is larger than what the DVD can hold but I am using 4.7GB (2hours).
