I'm using Tune-Up System Utilities version 9 software for cleaning up and optimizing my computer performance.
When I use the One-Click Tune-Up maintenance utility, it says that I need to defragment my C:. And when it starts defragmenting it, it takes too much time while analyzing the partition. And then when it somehow starts defragmenting the drive it stuck's at 40%.
I have waited for hours so that I might proceed further, but it did not.
I have tried to defragment it by using windows utility as well. Same thing happened there as well.
What I should do?
C drive of my HDD is not being Defragmented
It seems your HDD got some bad sector, that’s why when you start defragment it, it stuck's.
You can get into properties of C and try cleaning drive C by clicking “Disk Cleanup”. Moreover you can try reinstalling windows after formatting Drive C. If problem won’t be solved then you can try installing windows in some other drive like D. In this case the Window will be installed in drive C and only some of its booting files will be placed in drive C by windows setup.
Even then if the problem would still there then you have got to change your HDD.
Since physical bad sector is irreparable.
Best of luck!
