Defragmentation....!! Whats its use?

No comments

We find in our computer there is a application called Defragmentation.
But many of us don't actually know what it is.
The data stored in the hard disk is not arranged as it is shown on the monitor
When we store a large file (say 700 MB), It is stored in several parts of hard disk called as fragments.
When we open the file, it takes much time to collect all the parts and open the file.
Defragmentation is process which joins all the fragments and store at a single location in our hard disk which results in fast accessing of the file.
So the main advantage of this is to speed up the system
It is advisory to run this app once a month
Location: Start--->All Programs--->Accessories--->System Tools--->Disk Defragmenter
