    I want to Defrag one of my partition on server2003.It's role is File Server.

    But My shared Folder for Roaming profile is located on that Partition and when I try to defragment it using Microsoft Defrag tool it says Because of Some Files on "\system volume information\" it can not Defrag it.What should I do Should i use any 3rd party Program.It's Really Fragmanted.

    Before defrag prcoess, disconnect users from the server until the defrag prcoess end and reboot the server first to verity that everything ok.
    Is there free space in the server drives? Is the problem occur after stopping the antivirus on the server?
    Did the problem occur in Safe Mode? You use "Shadow Copy"? Check if disable it help.
