Is it normal that XP's defrag programm will take hours and do only a small part of the job?

Is it normal that XP's defrag programm will take hours and do only a small part of the job?

When running XP's default defrag program on my Acer laptop, it takes maybe 3 hours before it stops, and then the job is never done: it is clear from the programs graph that a lot remains to be done (and I can keep running it times and times, and it never gets the job properly done).

"Maybe you are looking for a powerful disk defragmenter , this superuser talk is about the best ones.

Currently I'm using OO Defrag, perhaps
the best defrag programm there is.
I'm looking for a free/open source
alternatives with at least powerful
defrag algorithms."
