A recent response to a question on defragging suggested that defragging did not actually defrag the files but only the hard drive - is this true ? I always thought that defragging actually reconstituted each fragmented file and placed it in a contiguous order.
Defrag defrags the files. Some defrags have a Quick Mode thats simply defrags the hard drive by moving data about quickly to fill gaps but all defragers defrag the files into contiguous files in Normal operation.
I read same, it seemed to speed things up. Went into System Properties..performance..Vertual Memory..clk to set yourself..disable..reboot..Defrag..re-enable. Plus entered 1.5x Ram in both boxes. As advised on this geat forum. Les
