Every system and network has felt the effects of fragmentation. While most of us have experienced a slow down of our PCs with continuous use, what we do not realize is that the fragmentation of the files is one of the key reasons for it. This is because of the wastage of the precious I/O resources by system while writing fragmented files to cluttered spaces on the disk while you attempt to remove software, install new programs and mobilize your files around the drives.
This entails that each time you move, write or delete your files; the disk becomes even more defragmented, leading to parts of the files being placed in different locations on the drive. Thus loading an application or reading a file is all the more time consuming as the system now spends large amounts of time locating these different file locations instead of reading it from a continuous block.
For a clean, fast disk and to prevent fragmentation, you need to defragment your drive. This not only places the files in a single block by analyzing and reassembling the fragments but also allows large regions of free space by compressing the file systems.
