Defragment Your Hard Drives To Increase System Performance and Speed

Defragment Your  Hard Drives To Increase System Performance and Speed

All files in the hard disk drive are organized in a proper manner by the computer. However, when the user explores and uses these files over and over again, there are chances that they could get corrupted. Most of the times, computer generates and saves new files (temporary files) when some regular processes such as saving and deleting files are performed.

Due to this, almost all files of even a single program are scattered over several locations in HDD (Hard Disk Drive). A file structure of such type is termed as fragmentation. The system stability and PC performance are highly affected when there are several fragmented files in HDD.

A special tool namely Disk Defragmenter is pretty useful for Windows users with which you can improve the system stability. This tool reorganizes the fragmented files and replaces them as “contiguous blocks”. All the associated files are closely arranged making the program to work fast.

You will also find an inbuilt Disk Defragmenter tool in Windows to find out the frequently used programs, and it checks the log files. After that, by rearranging such files it reduces the start up time of respected program.

It is highly recommended to run Disk Defragmenter every week if you use your PC for 2 hours every day. It would be more helpful to run Windows Disk Defragmenter immediately after installing or uninstalling a few programs at a time.

Following step by step guide will help you to Defragment your computer’s HDD.

  1. First of all, go to My Computer and open it.
  2. Then, you have to right click on any one local drive. Select Properties from the context menu.
  3. Now, click on the tab namely, Tools and after that ‘Defragment now’ button.
  4. First click on the Analyze button. After analyzing, click on the Defragment button. The defragmentation process will be started.

Using above steps, you can also defragment other hard disk drive partitions.

As an alternate way to open Windows Disk Defragmenter, go to Start then go to All programs then Accessories and then System Tools and now select Disk Defragmenter.

Configuring Huwaie MT882 for Ktorrent

Although I miss some uTorrent specific features (example: loading torrents from a folder) sorely, Ktorrent is pretty good. OpenSUSE pushes it and the inbuilt firewall to you with the installation, configuring both of it to work together calls for a How-to, of sorts.

If you have done port forwarding before, then you are just one step from getting Ktorrent to mooch all your bandwidth, if not, you might want to check out portforward.com.

So once you have added the ports at your router’s admin page, note them down. Then, fire up the Konsole and do a “/sbin/ifconfig” and note the IP that follows the word “inet addr”, that is your network IP. Follow this with a “/sbin/route” and note down the IP that follows the word “default”, that would be your gateway address.

That’s pretty obvious no? If you were the one who set up your DSL on OpenSUSE, you’d probably be like “yeah! I put in those digits”.

Now also do “sudo /etc/init.d/SuSEfirewall2_init status” and see that the firewall is stopped, you don’t quite need it anyway with a linux system. But if it’s not stopped. it’s okay, not a problem.

Go to Ktorrent configuration and fill in the TCP and UDP ports you forwarded and maybe another additional one if you want DHT.

If you are like me (ahem the CRS – Can’t Remember Shit type person), then don’t wonder why despite your forwarding ports and adding them into Ktorrent, you still get the “No incoming connections , possibly firewalled” symbol.

Go to the port forwarding page (in MT882 case it’s called Virtual Server) and check the IP you added for the ports, it’s gotta be the same as your network IP. I often make that mistake because DataOne gives the liberty to choose any network IP between 192.168.1.2 and 192.168.1.100. So at any given point of time the network IP I entered is not the top things in my head.
