    Default Disk defragmentation

    I was just wondering what disk defragmentation is for? Is there any need to perform it? Coz someone told me that its good and kind of speeds up your pc and frees up space but I've never noticed any difference.
    Thanks

    A badly fragmented HD, will slow down the computer.

    Some people due it often, me a couple times a year.

    Read about defrag here:

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Disk_defragmentation

    Defrag is best done while in the safe mode. If has been a long time since you did it, it can take hours.
