    Just a thought, but since people with dual-boot seem to be finding that XP's
    defragger can cope with Vista formatted disks I wondered if you could copy
    XP's defragger across to Vista.
    Presume it would need to be isolated in its own directory together with the
    XP versions of the appropriate DLL files - but subject to that could it be
    made to work and restore some form of progress indication (the visible colour
    bars would be enough for this)?.
    If so, any idea what files to copy?
