  • Disk Defragmenter

    How often do you defrag your HD for your computer? I try to do one at least once a month unless i've done some big installs and removals.

        Don't really think about it. Can't remember the last time.

          Just when I read this thread! Been the last time a year or two ago.

          I have 2 hard drives with 6 overall partitions. Only the C partition needed defragement. (Grrr Firefox didn't recognize the word so I'm not sure of the spelling)

            I only defrag the hard drives that run Windows, and I usually do that once a month, sometimes less.

              I defrag every month and for some reason I also zero my Hard Drive right after? Just a habit I guess, it takes 12 hours to do thou.

                  Same as Wayne... I think the excessive defragmenting is a phase for most people. I know I was obsessed with doing it like once every (other) week about 10-15 years ago, but hardly ever since. Of course, back then defragging still made noticeable difference and recovered precious space, unlike now. I don't think I've defragged this box since I've bought it over a year ago. No need really, everything's running just fine. And it's not even fragmented that much despite my moving quite a lot of files around.

                      +1. On today's computers, it doesn't really do anything noticable.

                        Not only this.... Imagine you have a 320GB harddisk, which is filled 100 GB. Where should a fragmentation come from?

                              Isn't even needed on Windows based computers unless you're using FAT16/32 still. On NTFS, like all journaled file systems, there is no practical benefit to defragging a drive.

                              Even if you needed to, its a lot more time efficient to zero out the drive through formatting and slamming it with your operating system off DVD images. Especially when you get over 100 GB drives.
