Does anyone know how i defragment my IBM deskstar 34 DXP 32.Gb as it appears that I do not have enough memory to defragment it, I have 128Mb!

I may be wrong but I did not think that the size of your RAM affected your ability to defragment. I understood that if your HD was too full then the programme could not move your files about. How much of your 32 GB is left and what is the size of your largest file. If you have a 2GB file and only 1 GB left then there is not any way to move the file. Or am I completely wrong! Any other views. By the way defragmenting a very full 32GB HD will take a veeeery loooong time.

Yes my Hardrive actually has about 30Gb free on it, and the file size can be no larger than premiere!
