    Total Defrag can not defrag system volumes from inside the OS. It can only do the job from outside widows during boot time. It is not a flaw, it is by design.

    What I understood is that "total defrag will not defrag any volume normally and it wants to do the job on restart every time" Is that correct?

    If total defrag is refusing to do the partition or hard disk online then it means your operating system has open handles on these partitions or drives. (OS has locked the drive for its use). You can only do such drives and partitions offline.

    Check this by defragging a usb hard drive, it should defrag normally while inside windows.

    Locks can be pinpointed with "LockHunter" (http://lockhunter.com/) and removed in some cases (by stopping the corresponding apps, when possible).
