O&O Defrag Pro and Avast! Pro problem
« on: August 28, 2003, 12:06:58 PM »
Whenever I run O&O Defrag Pro to defrag, and if Avast! 4 Pro is on at the same time, O&O produces a "checkdisk error" and thus can't continue defragging my main drive.

On the partitioned half however, the checkdisk goes through and the drive is defragged.

If I turn Avast! OFF, then the checkdisk goes through and everything is defragged properly on the main HD.

is this a known issue?

thanks for any help.

WinXP Pro SP1
O&O Defrag Pro 4.0
Avast! 4.0 Pro

thnaks guys.

i guess this is a known issue then.

Turning Avast OFF really isn't a solution speciallyw hen you have your defrag utility on scheduled defragmentation.

hope this is addressed on next release.

Actually it's related to NTFS partitions. It's always been working perfectly on FAT/FAT32 volumes, just NTFS partitions were causing problems. Fortunately, even this has been resolved (as discussed in the other thread).
