Back in the old days (just last year, in fact), the stock disk defragmenter in Windows looked something like this:

xp disk defragmenter

If you had no choice but to defragment a drive immediately, then at least you could entertain yourself by watching little green and red stripes bounce around inside the window. A quick glance could tell you if the defragmentation was nearing completion.

Along comes Vista, with a new defragmenter interface:

vista disk defragment

The defragmenter takes more of a Hollywood "don't call us - we'll call you" approach. I haven't found any red, green, and blue bars moving around to pass the time.

All I have left is hope.

I hope this finishes.

I hope this finishes soon.
