Default Disk Defragmenting goes from 100 - 1%


As the title says it reaches 100 then goes to 1% again...never had this issue before wondering what you guys think it is and a possible fix.

How fast does it go to 100%? It could be that it is still defragmenting a aprt of the hard drive. Could be that when it reaches 100% that a applicaiton requests something from teh hard drive and the defrag starts all over again.

There are many things it could be.

I do not accept support questions via EMail, PM, IM or my G+ page!

Phone: LG Optimus G Pro

Is this the Windows defrag? Look into either O&O Defrag or Diskeeper. MUCH better, but not free.
Change the world. Of one person. Today.

If your equation requires either a complex combination of variables to get the desired result OR you can't seem to get the result regardless of the variables....it ain't your variables, it's your constant.
