Windows Server 2000 defrag
« on: December 03, 2007, 09:56:47 PM »
This may or may not be specific to W2K, but I need to defrag the HD and when I run Windows defragmenter it tell me that I have 40% free space but 0% usable space.  What's the deal with this.

As far as I can see the drive is healthy and the MFT is not showing to be overly huge.  I tried a third party defragmenter with no better results.  Any other ideas anyone?
