When you are constantly downloading and/or installing things to your PC you are going to fill up the hard drive rather quickly. This is a case when it really does not matter how much space you actually have on the hard drive – internal and/or external(s). You are going to need to keep it/ them defragmented so that your PC runs at peak speed and performance. You are going to find out that too many files and directories being fragmented and spread all over the hard drive only makes the PC work harder to find everything it needs to run any program.
Imagine this for a minute if you will; you are looking for the paperwork that you need to, let’s say, file your income taxes and you have all the paperwork in several folder in your filing cabinet. You need to spend the time hunting through each folder for everything that you need. Well, this is exactly the same thing that your PC ends up having to do when the hard drive is fragmented. This is what takes all the time.
The best thing to do is to keep running a “defrag” on your PC after each time you either install or delete anything. This puts things back in order so that the computer does not have as difficult a time finding things it needs. You also would be very wise to do a daily defrag if you are doing a lot online to keep everything in good order and aligned properly.
