Defragmenting Drives

I was just curious about why Norton Utilities 16 says I am 26% fragmented while Windows itself, which I have 'optimize automatically' tuned on , shows I am 0% fragmented? Thank you ...

Re: Defragmenting Drives

Norton may be reporting the actual fragmentation of all files on your drive. But Windows will purposely fragment some files for quicker access. So Windows defrag may only report fragmentation that may actually make a difference, while excluding the deliberate fragmentation.

Things happen. Export/Backup your Norton Password Manager data.
