What is a Disk Defragmenter?

The Disk Defragmenter is a computer program included with Microsoft Windows to re-organize the files on your hard drive so that the files can be easily referenced and accessed.  In everyday use, your computer files are written and there are naturally occurring gaps in between the files, and the purpose of defragmenting your computer’s hard drive is to push all files together and “re-claim” these gaps of un-used space on your hard drive and increase the time necessary to reference these files.

Regularly defragmenting your drive is a good idea to make slight improvements in hard drive open space as well as operating time.

To run a defrag:

1. Click Start then go to All Programs then Accessories then System Tools then Disk Defragmenter.

2. Select your hard drive (usually C:) then click “Defragment disk”.

3.  Let run and your finished.  Repeat on usual basis.

Below is what the Disk Defragmenter looks like:
