Disk Scanning and Defragmentation:
Disks refer to hard drives and other storage media installed in Window Operating System. When working with different applications and dealing with many assignments at a time, there are lot of problems that occur which cause disk load, disk error and splashed data on the storage surface. By using disk scanning and defragmentation function, users can re-arrange the data stored on disks surfaces and make the disk able to work properly after scanning.
Formatting Storage Media:
Sometimes there is a need to clean or wash out all kinds of data to make the drive fresh. Users can format the drives within no time but depending on the size of the disk. However, there is an option to quick format or regular format. Quick format takes no time but regular format takes more time as it formats and scans the drive at a time. There is also an option to format the drive with a required file system. Normally it is NTFS or FAT32. It is the user’s priority for file system selection.
While working in network environment or using the Internet at home or in the office, there are chances for a PC to be infected by different kinds of viruses. However, users have to deal with viruses according to the situation and degree of infection. They should use Windows Security System to control virus infections or they may install third party anti-virus tools to remove all kinds of viruses. However, in networking environment user should use proper firewall to prevent further problems.
Windows Users Management:
In offices or at home, there are chances that a computer might be used by more than one user. In such cases, there is an open option to create logins or users as much as it is required. They further include power users, administrative users, guest users and parental control users especially for kids. These are password protected login and have full privacy.
Installing Third Party Software & Hardware:
A user doesn’t have much in a single operation system so they always need to install third party software or hardware. In this case, users have to be very careful in choosing applications, hardware devices and their drivers. Users should always use compatible software and hardware devices so that they do not feel any difficulties in the future while working with Window Operation System.
