How to Improve Computer Performance by Defragmentation


All computer devices get stuck with lots of data that can slow down its processing speed or disable some applications altogether. In order to avoid this kind of problem from occurring and having some irreversible consequences on the hard disk drive of your computer system, then you just have to consider disk defragmentation as a reliable way to improve the performance of your laptop or desktop.

What actually is disk defragmentation? Disk defragmentation is the rearrangement of information and data stored in your computer system so that your device hardware, software drivers could synchronize more effectively and function more efficiently. Disk defragmentation often runs at a programmed interval set by the user and it can equally be run manually. Several operating systems have their various ways of defragmentation. However, we shall emphasis on the Windows 7 operating system and how you could defragment your computer hard disk for greater performance.

 Procedures for Defragmentation

2. Under the 'current status' link you can select the disk you wish to defragment. However, remember to provide any password for administrative privileges if prompted.

3. If you are unsure of the disk to defragment, then run a defragmentation analysis to determine the percentage of fragmentation. If it is more than 10% then you should then run a defragmentation procedure on your system by clicking on defragment disk.

4. Defragmentation may take from several minutes to a few hours which generally depend on the amount of fragmented software in your computer system. This means that you can still use your system while the defragmentation goes on.

 5. There are instances when defragmentation of a hard disk may not be possible. If you are using a disk that is formatted in FAT32 and NTFS or exclusively in use in another program. Secondly, disks with errors or that have been damaged by a malware cannot be defragmented. Thus, the disks must be checked properly for errors and the errors fixed before proceeding on defragmentation. Thirdly, network locations cannot be defragmented.
