What is ‘Disk Defragment’?Adam | May 3, 2009 | 6:51 pm
Disk Defragmenter is a Windows program which rearranges the files stored on your hard-disk in such a way that these can be stored in a contiguous sequence. This new, ordered sequence of files increases the speed of reading and writing files to and from the hard-drive by decreasing the travel time of the internal components within the drive. This in turn, increases the transfer rate of data and also helps in improving the startup and shutdown time of your system.
How often should I use Disk Defragmenter?
The time interval between two Disk Defragmentation sessions depends on the nature of computer usage. If you install/uninstall software very frequently or download a lot of small files, like pictures, documents and music, you likely have lots of data on your hard drive and you should defragment your computer at least once a month. For computers with less intensive hard-drive usage, Disk Defragmentation should be used every 3 months or so.
