Default can't defrag files, what software do you recommend?

ok, I just analyzed my computer it said, you should defrag.

So i defrag, and then i get the window saying these files cannot be defragged blah blah.

i hit analyze again and it says you should defrag...

im like wtf? so i restart the computer, then defrag, and im still getting the same errors saying it cannot defrag these anime movies i downloaded.

anyone know why im getting this and how i can solve this problem? would having [ ] @()&$# charaters like that in file name not cause the drive to defragment?

aswell I was wondering if anyone has any defragging software they would recommend?

Get Diskeeper by Executive Software. This will also allow you to defrag the pagefile, consolidate folders, defrag system files, defrag the MFT, etc. Very handy!

I use Raxco's Perfect Disc.

You can download a 30 day trial.

If using Xp's defragger run in safe mode and set your page file at zero before defragging (restore the page file after the defrag).

Try getting Power Defrag. I think you can get it from www.downloads.com. if not, search google/yahoo.

I got Diskeeper a few months ago and I am extremely happy with it.
