I ran defrag over night last night and when it was done it said it couldn't defrag all files. There's still a lot of red where it wasn't defragged. I thought maybe the files were in use or something, so I tried in safe mode and the same files couldn't be defragmented. Here's part of the lotfile.

15,455 1.55 GB \\Program Files (x86)\\Steam\\SteamApps\\counter-strike source shared.gcf

The same files when trying to defrag in Safe Mode and in normal mode. Also, the last time I tried to play HL2 it took forever to load from the hard drive. I was guessing it's because it's terribly fragmented. The biggest issue with that is my hard drive is NTFS, so the normal DOS Defragmenter won't work. Does anyone know of a disk defragmenter that can bypass this problem, maybe defrag an NTFS partition from DOS?

You can try Diskeeper. I use it for my rig, and it keeps everything nice and neat from what I can see. Just download the trialware which lasts for 30 days if I remember right. It might be less.
