Is there any harm in running the disk defragmenter for a while and then cancelling it before it is completed?

Leave the defrag to run its course,and why would you want to cacel the process ?

If you have not defragged for a while,leave it to run overnight.

I had to cancel it once because it was taking too long and I had to leave my house so I wanted to shut the computer down. I just want to know if this has caused any harm to my hard disk.
