  2. Windows Partition Not Properly Fragmenting, Status Stuck At 12% Fragmented Needs Optimisation, Windows 10 Home

    Hi Daanisch,



    The above issue might occur due to corrupt files, folders, or bad sectors or if programs running in the background is accessing the hard drive on the computer.



    Close all the program that is currently running on the computer and optimize the drive to check if the issue is resolved.



    To close the programs currently running on the computer, follow the steps below:




    • Right click on the taskbar and select
      Task Manager from the context menu.

    • Click on the program and select
      End task on the window.

    • Close after all the programs are closed and run disk fragment to check if the changes are effective.


    Write to us with the status of disk fragment stopping at 12%-13% on the computer in the same post for further assistance. Your reply is most important for us to ensure we assist you accordingly.



    Thank you.

  3. Recovery drive D:  41% fragmented

    It is a system drive which doesn't affect your performance as no read-write is performed on it. So I suggest you not to fragment it.

    SYSTEM - Hard Disk Drive Heavily Fragmented

    I have a Drive named "SYSTEM" known under Media type as a Hard disk drive. It is 67% fragmented every time it is analyzed. I click on optimize and it goes through the process very quickly like 3 seconds and then says the drive is 33% fragmented. If
    I select analyze again it reverts back to 67% fragmented immediately. I've tried two 3rd party Defrag applications and both do not list the drive SYSTEM. Is this problem permanent and the only fix requires a new hard drive?
