Your 05-Nov-01 - 10:53 AM said you getting a "BAD COMMAND" but it's not clear which thing your trying to do when it happens. Was this in the DOS window, perhaps?
If you let Defrag run overnight, it may have just stopped itself and "guv up." As mentioned above, whenever anything writes something to the drive, Defrag has to start over. If it restarts twelve times, it will stop and display a message "Defrag has restarted 12 times, do you wish to continue" or something like that. If you don't respond withing some ?? period of time, it just shuts itself off.
I have never had to close things on the "Start" bar at the bottom of the screen - that is the things that load automatically when you boot up - in order to run Defrag. On the other hand, I don't recognize any of the things Sorcha is describing. Have you compared what programs you both have installed to make sure your talking about the same things?
If you're getting some results with Sorcha, by all means stick with it.
I'll watch for a while.
