My System Specs

Default Why such a huge MFT on my C: drive?

So I have reformatted onto a new-ish HDD, Seagate 250GB 16MB 7.2k. I tried defragging to get all my files down the the centre of the disc as I like to have them but this HDD just wouldn't let them go there using Windows defrag. So I tried JK Defrag as it looked like the shizzle and it is showing a HUGE MFT (pink area in screen shot below) and won't move any files there?

I have run some tests using HDTune and HDTach and there is nothing glaringly wrong that I can tell? Also Chkdsc did not report any errors either. Any idea why I have such a massive MFT area?

I have system restore off. My Recycle bin reserved space is at 3%. My pagefile is 3GB and even if I move it to a seperate HDD the huge MFT is still present.

Thanks for your help.
