So many of us have moved to SSD hardrives that defragging is long longer necessary. To be honest I have not even done it on my 2 x 1TB secondary drives but as one has around 500GB of games on it, perhaps it is something I should do?
I used to (in the distant past) defrag every week, but since then have used Diskeeper automatically defragging and completely forgot about it until I saw this posting. My main PC has slowed slightly over the past few months, so after seeing this posting I looked at Diskeeper, analysed and then defragged and it has quickened up. Going back to the distant past there were two main problems of slowing down - a need for defragging and the removal of temp files.
Whether this is a subject that was once the thing to do, but now isn't due to people getting more 'computer savvy', and the components are getting more advanced, I wouldn't know. Perhaps someone else as an opinion or suggestions on that?.
But from my own experiences, I very seldom do this nowadays, even when I partake in fairly frequent clean-ups, which usually results in a speedier and less problematic computer. When I have done any defragmenting, its usually with one of those 'quick' defrag (Auslogic?) programmes, and not the operating systems own devices.
