I am running vista home premium I have 417 gb free on my hd. I just checked whether to defrag and my total space extent decreased by 1000 from yesterday. The following is what the command prompt told me about defrag:

Microsoft Windows [Version 6.0.6001]

No, I believe that's the number of seperate sectors containing free space or something similar. There isn't (at least as far as I know), any sort of limitation on the actual number of files that can be placed on a drive, your only limitation is the amount of space, which can be consumed by many many small files or fewer large files. I don't think total number of files comes into play :) .
