Fragmentation occurs whereby files on the disk becomes scattered on the disk. This increases the time taken to access the files hence making the computer slow on performance. To solve this, disk defragmentation is carried out in a bid to rearrange data on your hard disk and re unite fragmented files to reduce access time and the computer will run more efficiently.

Disk defragmentation is a process of rearranging the data and reuniting the fragmented data on your storage device, so that it works efficiently.

Fragmentation occurs when you save, delete or change the files.

Usually the modified files are stored at some other location in your volume. These changes are not applied to a file where it is placed. This reduces the speed and performance of your computer. A tool called Disk Defragmenter consolidates the file data on a volume and makes it work efficiently.
