How to Defrag the Hard Drive?

What is disk defragmentation?

Disk defragmentation is the process of consolidating the fragmented data on your computer hard drive. This process arranges your entire data present on the hard drive in a continuous manner.

Disk fragmentation occurs over time as you save, delete or update the files. Whenever you save a file, due to fragmentation your file will be divided into small logical pieces and saved on different locations of your hard disk. Any additional changes or updates made are saved in the similar fashion. As time goes by, both file and hard drive itself might become over fragmented, and your system becomes slow. This happens because it has to look at many different locations to fetch all the fragments and rearrange them to open a single file. Hence, fragmented hard drive reduces the performance of the computer. Due to these, defragmenting your hard drive becomes very important.
