    Hi,

    I am currently running ESET NOD32 Antivirus Ver 4.2.64.12 and I plan to defrag my HDD.

    To avoid potential problem, is there any NOD32 folder or file that I should exclude from defragmentation?

    No it's not necessary to exclude anything! ;)

    No need, just defrag.

    I use Perfect Disk to first run a performance aggressive defrag. then I follow that with a Perfect Disk boot defraf which restarts my system and defrags the boot files and the paging file :)

    I run Diskeeper in the background. Defrags smoothly with any other programs running.:thumb:

    You would exclude certain files and folders from real-time scannning via this article, you would exclude certain files and folders while running an on-demand scan via this article

    Best bet would be to run your HD disk defrag in safe mode, I do.

    Best of luck. Thank you.

    Using Windows 7 built in defrag program on a schedule, without exclusions, I have had no problems at all.
