    I have tried many times to defragment Vista through the Windows Live One Care
    program tune up button but it keep saying that it cannot defragment some
    parts of the drive and that it will try later to fix them.

    What can I do?

    Same answer as I already gave you earlier. Some files are not and can not be
    moved by the defrag routine. This is normal and should be ignored.

    How exactly is this urgent?

    These are probably system files (MFT, paging file) or other files that
    are locked because they are in use. Doing a boot-time defrag ought to
    defrag these system files. You may need to use a third party tool like
    Diskeeper because the Vista/One care utility may not defrag all files
    even during boot-time (I dont know for sure).

    BTW, this is not an urgent problem. It can be fixed at your leisure.

    I first found this problem (of Vista's defragmenter not moving some files)
    when I got my new laptop and was trying to repartition the disk.
    What I did was to download Perfect8 and it allowed to move the "unmovable"
    files and defragment. This way I could reduce the partition size to what I
    wanted.

    Hope this helps,
