Thread: How often do you defrag your hard drive?

    How often do you defrag your hard drive?

    I use a program called tuneup utilities which correct registry errors and defrags my hard drives. Unfortunately, it takes quite a long time and slow down my pc performance, so I always put it off until it's a really big issues.

    What about you guys?

    I use Windows' basic disk defragmenter to do the defragmenting task. I do it once every three weeks.

    I do defragment my hard drive once a week and sometimes every 2 weeks.
    I need to do that so that my laptop will work fast.

    It usually speeds loading time by making the program and/or file all within a common area on the hard disk. Therefor the drive doesn't need to go all over the place.

    Defrag means reorganise the fragment of files stored in the computer hard disk. After defrag, the computer can access to the files more easily and thus improves the speed of the PC.

  8. I defrag my drives just a few times a year. It needs to be done more often the that, but I just never seem to take the time to do it.

    I don't use any extra program to defragment my computer. I am using Windows and it has its own tools, the Defragmenter. Actually defragmenting is something I am not so willing to do because it DOES take time.

    And defragmenting waiting time also depends on size of Disk and how much part of HDD has files on them.
