SATA Drives

Are SATA drives better at keeping your files in order? I ask this because ever since i've had my new computer i never have to defrag as i did with my older computer i had to defrag that at least once a week.

There shouldn't be any difference.

The main differences are SATA is faster and the interface is different, but ultimately, it's still just a disc for storing data. Windows or any other operating system you are using, determins how the data is stored.

How did you know that you needed to defragg? What tells you now you don't?

When i do a scan via NSW,This could have just have been NSW i suppose but my old computer always worked faster.
