I have Norton Utilities for our Windows machine. Does LUGOD want to use it?

Yes, the default defragger sucks.  Norton Utilities' defragger is very
good, and will move _everything_.  Just note, that if all of Norton
Utilities is installed, it has a program called "disk image" IIRC,
which puts a hidden file at the very end of the disk, so you need to
turn off that program and delete the hidden file (I can't remember the
name, but it was mentioned in the FIPS docs) before running FIPS.
