    Defragmenting with Vista

    Defragmenting with Vista 8th Apr 09 at 6:01 PM

    I started defrag on my computer since there's no evidence in the Event Log that it's run since I got the computer (it says it's due to run every Weds at 1am, although I never have my computer on then). I have Vista and my computer's about 4 months old. The defrag box has a spinny blue circle indicating that it is indeed doing something, but it's been doing since 10am (so roughly 8 hours so far). Is this normal for Vista? On my XP computer it would take max an hour to do. Is there anyway of seeing if it is infact defragmenting or just showing me a spinny blue circle?
