Frag Pack

The operation of 'defrag', or 'defrag' a hard drive is a fairly useful thing to do to increase significantly even in some cases, the performance of your PC. But how this works?

Hard drives, even faster in the trade (above 7200 PROM) often constitute the major bottleneck to the speed of a personal computer: the time to access a particular memory cell on a hard disk can be depending on the particular technology, even thousands of times slower than accessing the same amount of memory on a RAM. When the hard disk is empty, file system is free to write the files on the hard disk in a convenient location, but after a few deletes and rewrites, what will happen is that the data related to the same application will be stored in different parts of the hard drive, making data retrieval and update a lot slower.

The solution the problem is the defragmentation, which is an operation that rearranges all files in a contiguous and optimal way to minimize access time by hard disk, thus reducing the 'bottleneck' effect. Fragmentation is a very delicate operation that, according to the amount of data on disk, can as long as several hours, so use a good and reliable program for this purpose becomes vital.

In most versions of Windows, including Windows XP and Windows Vista, a disk defragmentation utility is embedded in the operating system. Simply right-click the hard drive icon and click 'Properties', then click the last tab: you should be able to see, among other options, the 'defrag' button. Make sure can leave your PC for a while and then start the procedure. Often it is advisable not to make a hard disk-intensive heavy programs, while operation of this type is carried out, or you risk losing data – data not necessarily related to the program you're using.

Depending on the speed from your hard drive and the amount of data you have stored, the operation could take half an hour to several hours. It is important not to interrupt the process, because the operation is usually dangerous – on the other hand, the entire defragmentation process is likely to start from scratch and does not resume from last time.

In the Linux platform, ext2 filesystems can defragment with tools like e2defrag, while ext3 can be defragmented with the command 'Shake'. Interestingly, e2defrag also has a convenient option for virtually and temporarily, as it were, 'cut' the file system to defragment ext3 to ext2.

Finally, failing to integrate Apple computers defragmentation utilities, so you have to to seek a third program, as iDefrag. In the apple.com site, however, say that defragmentation is often unnecessary, and there are stories (href = "http://forums.mactalk.com.au/20/32660-do-you-need-defrag -your-mac-hd-answer-revealed.html "> http://forums.mactalk.com. au/20/32660-do-you-need-defrag-your-mac-hd-answer-revealed.html) of defragmentations try strangely the opposite result, with a yield worse instead of better.
