    It says some files can't move. Should I use idefrag and see if it'll work? Or should I just do a clean format (delete everything and install OS from CD?). I think this is happening because the hard drive I have now is a copied version from my original hard drive via Superduper (when I upgraded my laptop's hard drive). So, I'm not sure if I should reinstall via superduper again or just reinstall fresh from the CD.

    I have 180gb of free space and I'm trying to make a 100gb partition. It seems like there's a lot of fragments via iDefrag and it seems like I don't have 100gb of 'continuous' free space. So, technically iDefrag should solve this problem, right? Or is the problem that Bootcamp is not allowing me to create a partition is due to something else?

    iDefrag does indeed help in many cases. Would not hurt to try.
