Why this space exists ?

Recommended Posts

Hey there .

 

I would like to ask why does this happens

What kind of reason or what can do this ?

 

I am speaking about the empty space between files ,I did free space and then Defragment ,twice but it always ignores those spots (not really sure)

Can it be bad sectors ?

Perhaps post a screenshot.

 

Bad sectors probably not, however you can confirm by running ChkDsk /r on the disk.

 

If it's a large gap you're viewing It could very well be the MFT Reserved Area which most defrag tools try to move files away from to create a gap.

I completely forgot about it

I used to have Perfectdisk license but not anymore ,half way through the license I went W10 from Windows 7 (friend's license) but 2 weeks ago ,or not even 2 weeks .I dropped W10 ,since i had too many troubles with it and I could not use PerfectDisk ,it even made huge mess in the OS when I upgraded ,Back now on Vista 64 .

 

Anyway the gap is not whole ,there are files in the middle of the GAP ,so I am not sure about MFT .

I posted an image (in the OPening post)

You can click on the file in Defraggler to see what it is. If it's a locked system file like the pagefile/swapfile a boot time defrag can defragment it - might take a good amount of time to defragment it though.

Hmm

I clicked every ,each one after the fragmented file ,then we have 3 empty ones then

the $UsnJml:$J (68 Fragments) - all those in the yellow marking I did ,don't have my usual software for editing stuff ,so had to use and fail hard with mspaint

Oh and the Filled spaces you see after that Usn... are really empty ,at least that's what Defraggler says when I Click them

Ok i did that and now I see the same thing ,except with no USN ,it shows the same thing , I even click on the filled ones after the empty space (same screenshot is okay)

I think i will have to call my friend and ask if he can lend me his HDDReg for 2 days . No idea why it shows it like that

 

I don't know if this has anything to do with this (probably not ,more like GPU drivers...) I keep getting random (maybe not so random) BSODs 0xA0000001 when I seek videos / Movies on the TEMP partition of the same HDD .
