The computer hard drives have spinning platters on which, data is stored in different places. When you write data on hard disk, it will be stored as a blocks ordered sequentially. However, fragmentation happens when a single file is split among the blocks that are far away from each other. The hard drive then takes more time to read that file since the read head has to visit multiple blocks on the platter. Therefore the defragmentation is needed to put all the blocks in sequential order so that the read head need not to run around the entire platter to read a single file.
If you are running a program containing hundreds of files that are fragmented across the platter, then it can degrade your system performance. As the group of files fragmented on your hard drive, the computer takes longer time to assemble all the files necessary to run the program. This is where the computer defragmenting concept comes in. It rearranges files sequentially on your hard drive, which cuts down the time needed to access files.
When the computer becomes slow, the less experienced user will get panic and start to do erratic things like deleting files. But it is absolutely unnecessary because it all happens due to fragmentation of hard disk on your computer.
