When To Run Disk Defragmenter

Disk fragmenting can help your computer system run more efficiently by re-organizing the filing system of your computer. Computer Tutor For Seniors recommends that you defrag on a monthly basis.

Other suggested times for defragging are:
  1. You've added a large number of files to your computer recently.
  2. Your free disk space totals 15 percent or less.
  3. You've installed new programs or a new version of Windows.
