View Full Version : slim.exe "cannot be defragmented"?

Just finished defragmenting my Windows XP C: drive. Used the software ("accessory") that came with the operating system.

Among the two dozen or so "Files that cannot be defragmented," the one with the most remaining fragments -- by far -- is \Program Files\SlimServer\SERVER\SLIM.EXE. Its properties don't indicate Read Only. 138 fragments remain.

Is there a known reason for this? Should it be? Does it matter?

Thanks.

The slimserver service is still running. Shut it down before running
defrag.

yes

> Does it matter?

Don't think so.
