    Well what can I say other than thank you - after a good days work, and with the help of Ccleaner, chksk, defragment etc my Daughters laptop has been given a new lease of life. It is running at the speed of sound without an error in site.

    If I can hide it in a cupboard for a few months , it might stay that way!!

    I have to say your help and that of other members since i joined the forum at the beginning of the month has been overwhelming. Cheers.........

    Worse case scenario, no permanent damage. It will not cause any damage to defrag the D drive. You may not want to do it again, since it is not needed. If something is not broken do not fix it. As far as restore points, if any were corrupted, and I doubt that, just make a new one. If you have any problems you can use the most current, just made, restore point.

    Thank you so much for your prompt reply, it was a genuine accident and it had already started running when I realised. I didnt just want to try and restore back before the defragment without asking in case this made the situation worse? Would it make it worse, better or no different.

    You are a real gem - thank you

    There is various opinions, but it is my opinion that if you defrag restore points, some of them may be lost. You may want to use the defrag that many of here use. It lets you know if you need a defrag and it does not affect the restore points. It does not affect mine, anyway.
    Disk Defrag - Fast and Safe Defragmenter for Your Disks
    You can do a SR after a defrag.
    To satisfy yourself, use the defrag that I suggest. Then use a system restore. Now go back to the defragger and analyze. Still does not need to be defragged, correct?
    It is best not to defrag too often (this will be argued, too), use the defragger analyzer to let you know when it is time to defrag.
