Slow computer (Pt. 2) – Defrag

23 07 2007

Alright. Defragging your computer does do wonders if you haven’t done that in a while. So HOW do you defragment your hard drive?

If you’re running Windows XP like most of us do, then click on:
1. Start > All Programs > Accessories > System Tools > Disk Defragmenter
2. Then click on Analyze and if you’re told you do not need to defrag your hard disk, you’re fine. If not, then click on Defragment and watch as the files in your cluttered hard disk get neatly stacked up.

Now some of us have Windows set up a little bit differently than others and if the above steps are not available, you can:
1. Click on Start, right-click on My Computer, then click on Manage.
2. On the pop-up Computer Management Console window and under Storage, click on Disk Defragmenter and then follow Step 2 from above.

Fragmentation even slows down pretty new systems, so one can only imagine the condition of an old system that has been used intensively. Would be like its caught all sorts of diseases- crashing, freezing and lagging when it feels like!
