i ran udefrag3 on a win7 machine and its showing that the system volume information is fragmented a lot and its not defraging this. is there a way that i can fix this?

win7 has a built in defrag that works automatically with no user intervention. why do you need to use another program?

That's where your System Restore information and data is stored. If you don't want those files, then turn off System Restore for that volume and those files will get wiped. Then run your defrag again. Then turn on System Restore afterwards.

+1 Leave Windows 7's defragger alone. Nothing else is necessary or useful.

Plus, SVI stores more than just system restore data.

Steve Gibson on password policies [grc.com]: I mean, I don't get this change it every eight weeks. ... It's not as if passwords are traveling by camel after they've been stolen, going to the bad guys, and so there's, like, some weird eight-week window, like, oh, we're going to change your password so that the stale password no longer works. ... And all this does is make IT people despised because users, who are not dumb, they think, why am I - why do I have to do this? What problem is this solving?
