Defrag problems...


I have been trying to create a couple of new partitions using FIPS, but every time I defrag, it leaves a section at the end of the drive, thus causing the program not to work.

I have disabled the win. swap file, what other things must I do to be able to move this space?

Thanks :)

Any "hidden" save/backup/restore/antivirus apps.
IIRC, also brands like Compaq etc, etc offer some kind of hidden partition to restore from, maybe could wreak havoc too.
