Basically, no, not with vista's built in defragmenter, although you ca
get a report from the command line version. Vista's inbuilt software i
designed to run without interference to the user so the only gui contro
is now the setting of the schedule and manual start.
According to microsoft the time remaining estimate is verry innacurat
anyway due to the nature of the defrag process

If you want to see the little boxes or a duration estimate you need t
go to a third party soloution. :

Exactly. You have to ignore fragmantation problems on Vista.
Since it uses scheduled background defrag it frees the user from this
routine job.

With the default Vista defragmenter, there is no way to get a graphical
drive map indicating file fragmentation.

You can, however, get verbose text analysis by typing the following at
the command prompt*. For eg, for analyzing drive C

defrag c: -a -v
note the spaces, they must be included

Do note that fragments larger than 64MB are not listed in the
analysis.
* you need to open the cmd prompt with administrative privileges i.e
right click on the icon and run as admin.


Hope this helps.

Best regards

WHY do you need to? Do you like watching paint dry?
