Too many unmovable files?

Recommended Posts

I am running Vista Ultimate 64 bit and Smart Defrag 1.20. I have a lot of black (unmovable files), which seem to be located on another part of the disk, and do not respond to fast optimize. Originally, this machine came with a hard drive backup in a separate 10 GB partition. I thought these black files were from that partition. I subsequently deleted this partition using Drive Manager, and expanded the "C" drive volume to fill the space. I now have two partitions, System Volume, and the "C" volume. Compared to my other computers, running XP, the fragmentation map doesn't seem right, with so much black. I am attaching a picture of the map. I'd like to know if this is normal, or do I have to delete some hidden files?

Hi abrenner,


Is it a PC or laptop?


If it is, then, MFT, MFT reserve space, Metadata files, page file, and hibernation file, Restore Points, altogether would take that much space.

Anyway if it is a PC, and assuming that there is no hibernation file, even then it is not too many than normal.

By definition, hibernation file size is equal to your RAM memory size. (Higher the RAM, bigger the Page file and hibernation file sizes.)

Hi abrenner


your hard-disk has the same problem as it had mine.


my own was repaired by mistake (read i thread started by me here) and so i don´t know how you can fix it.


maybe the problem was initiated by optimize defrag from SMART-DEFRAG but i cannot be sure. The black immovable clusters will increase as time goes on.

hi abrenner


if the problem with the immovable clusters is the space for restore-points then follow this proceedure:


All programs/accessories/system tools/disk cleanup


choose Files from all users give permission


select tab More Options


choose Clean-up under System restore and shadow copies


choose delete


all restore points will be deleted except the last one


check with smart defrag and free space as well


Sometimes if u don't erase restore points regularly can take up to 15% space of hard-disk
