It isn't possible for it to be working invisibly in the back ground whilst consuming RAM, CPU time and resources in general no matter how minimil, it still has a footprint.
Bob, does it work when the computer is idle? (without mouse and keyboard activity)
That's correct Tech. That's why I said it works in the background. It steps aside for all activity and only operates when the system is idle.

I'm  just glad to have a Defragmenter after what happened.  :P
Bob, with your server it makes a lot of sense to have a backround defragmenter, due to it's size - 250 gig  :o.
i've used Diskeeper Pro v8.0 Professional Edition for Windows(R)  4.0.100.1190 on a 40 GB machine, and it was o.k. with automatic background defragmentation. Depends on the Memory, and Cpu speed of course. If I hadn't been able to fix " The problem" this thread is about I would've installed it , just as a on demand Defrag. on a Pentium 3 , described below.         

DavidR, " Power Defragmentor -( RejZoRs - eXcessive-software.eu.tt Site)This is a GUI designed by RejZoR to allow for easy use of what is a command line type defrager contig.exe I think, there is a link to download the latest contig.exe file from system internals.com."
Yes It really is fantastic.  ;D Put it on a 40 GB machine (NTFS file system ), and it took around 15 minutes to do the ' PowerDefrag ' .
Also I note it has options to  defrag Folders, & files , very handy for my Son's 15 GB Games Folder.

My personal / play around with  Computer, (which  had the problem)   I threw together with bits and pieces I had lying around has a 6 GB HDD, and a slave 3 GB HDD. Defrags in less than a minute now. Fat32 file system , Win XP sp2 , 370 Mhz cpu, 256 RAM.

I told you it was quick ;D for me (also using fat32) there are times it would be faster than the windows defrag's analysis. I think it is a great tool, one that really wouldn't be so easy to use without RejZoR's GUI front end, not to mention it's free.
