Hello Dear,

Thanks for sharing your problem with us.

Dear disk defragment is very useful tool of windows.

Defragment means to sort files near or close to each other.

When we copy files into hard disk then computer saves them randomly, not in a sequence.

It makes computer hard to work with.

But when we run defragment tool. It sorts all files in sequence and it also increases the performance of computer and disk space.

I hope it will help you to understand your question.

Hi Mr. Peter Jackson,

As we all know the data is stored in the Hard disk,USB drive or any storage devices. Initially, we store data into an empty disk and gradually in the long run we delete some data and restore some data into it. As a result what happens in the disk, all the data is not sorted properly near to near each other. It consumes much spaces. Hence disk does not get much empty spaces in order to open the same data which was opening faster previously. Now it slowly opens. That is why disk defragment tool is there to sort the disorderly data inside the disk.
Note:Close all the applications before running disk defragment.It takes a lot of time to be defragmented.
1. Double click on my computer icon on your desktop computer.
2. Select any of the drive. For example C drive.
3. Right click on the C drive and go to the properties option and click on it.
4. Click on tools.
5. Click on defragment now.
6. Apply and OK.
