Having problems with your Sony VAIO Notebook ?

Can't defragment the C portion of the disc

\015 The laptop is a bit old, it's a Vaio model PCG-983L & like most Sony PC's the disc is partitioned. I have no trouble in defragmenting the D portion but the C just will not do it.\015

Answers :

On some systems it will allow you to defragment with lower than 15% of your hard drive, but sometimes some programs refuse to defragment if it is lower than that. I suggest trying to free up at least 900 MB in the drive and try defraging.
Since your C must be having windows system files and hence it can't be defragmented properly.

And if its not having windows then surely your C is having some faults.
