How to defrag your hard drive to speed up your PC
Your PC's hard drives and system registry can become fragmented if not maintained regularly. Fragmentation of your hard drive and system registry causes everything to slow to a crawl while your computer attempts to perform seek and write commands. This, in turn, slows down the performance of your entire system.
Sometimes, if you want speed up your computer, you need to "defrag" your computer's hard disk.
Defragmentation is a process that reduces the amount of fragmentation in file systems. It does this by physically organizing the contents of the disk to store the pieces of each file close together and contiguously.
It also attempts to create larger regions of free space usingcompaction to impede the return of fragmentation. Defragmenters also keep smaller files within a single directory together, as they are often accessed in sequence.
Defrag your hard drive to speed things up
"Defragging" your hard drive completely removes fragmentation gaps and produces a cleaner, more compact file organization that takes up less disk space and consumes fewer memory resources. The result is that your computer has optimal access to its files and programs, so your system and application response times are improved.

Always remove junk files and data before you defrag your hard drive
Before you defrag your hard drive, it's also good idea to remove junk and unneeded data files - over time your PC is left with temporary files, leftover file remnants from uninstalled applications, log files, Windows error reports, and much more. It doesn't make any sense to use the defrag tool to organize and make space for these unnecessary files, so if you can, get rid of them first.
