Why can't you run a standard defragment tool, like Windows Disk Defragmenter, or Defraggler, or others? I don't know your OS, but in Windows, depending on version, it's something like Start > Programs > Accessories and perhaps > System Tools. You might also get there by Start > Run and type "defrag" (no quotes) > enter.mckin927 said:I have a 160G harddrive with over a 100G of fragmented files on it. How do I get rid of them? Please talk to me like I'm a new user whinch in this aspect I am.
Did you know that you can usually delete directly from the Search function results box? "Select" (highlight) en masse, then r-click > delete. That should enable you to delete hundreds at a time. If not, then you can r-click and "open containing folder" and delete from there.mckin927 said:On my framented files, I've studied some tutorials and have refined my problem to a different area,"tmp" files. I have over 100G's of them. I found them with the search command on Windows XP and have deleted some of them but with over 19,000 files it's going to take a long time.
How do I erase 'bstF5.tmp' with 'eraser demand'or how do I bring up 'eraser'l. I'm using the 35 bit eraser on an older 'Pent. 4' processer and any help would be wonderful. I learn more every time I go at it but I've trying to delete this problem for 5 days and won't quit till I get it. Thanks for any help, mckin927.
