    Hi !

    If i run a 'defrag c: -f -v' -command from a command promt on the drive where the OS is installed (in this case c) will this command defrag everything on the drive ie. REGISTRY-, program- & datafiles ??

    If the REGISTRY hives is not defragmented how do i do it then o_O

    Thanks in advance for an answer.

    You didn't mention what OS you're using, but in 98 (or at least SE) there's another, "built-in" way.

    Reboot into DOS mode (command line from within Win won't work, probably because the registry's still active). Then run "scanreg /opt" (without quotes) and it in effect defrags your registry.

    The tips-and-tricks book I got this from also recommends that you run scanreg /fix first, before the ... /opt.
