The PC I use has seen multiple OS starting from windows 7 to windows 8.1. The performance good and has never given any problems. I know there is a feature called disk defragmenter which helps in keeping memory contents together (I hope). I need your help in knowing whether this tool is now obsolete or is it really required to run manually. Does the OS runs this app regularly? I have never run this application. So, just want to know if this is something we can ignore because the OS is smart or still this is classic way to do manually
Is disk defragmenter mandatory or not?
Disk defragmenter is not mandatory, if you are running low on disk space you can go for it. If you want to run Disk Defragmenter you want to run it manually. As you mentioned now the system became smarter, and your system is running smooth. But if you run the Disk defragmenter then your entire RAM will be used for that operation and it will take a lot of time depending upon your drive sizes. So you may not be ready for such a thing while you were doing some serious work. So Microsoft is restoring it in the classic way.
