How to defrag Windows 7
The speed of your own computer is not only important when compiling. Especially when computer is used for a while, it may become significantly slower. Defrag in Windows 7 can help to regain a little speed. And in combination with deleting unneeded programs and the correct setting of the autostart, the speed can be noticeably increased again.
What happens in Windows 7 when defragmenting?
Defragmenting can be thought of as cleaning up your room. This is because data is not stored in an orderly fashion on the hard disk, but rather scattered around. Retrieving the data therefore takes time. Defragmenting sorts related data so that it can be retrieved more quickly. Defraging the hard drive in Windows 7 can therefore be worthwhile from time to time.
- Click on the Windows button
- Under Programs/Browse Files type “Disk Defragmenter”
- At the top right you can set a schedule if you want to schedule the process
- At the bottom right under “Defragment Disk” you can start immediately
Defragmenting the hard drive in Windows 7 is very simple. Nevertheless, probably the fewest users use this function, but complain too readily about long loading times. We therefore recommend defragmenting the hard disk at least every 6 months to keep the loading times short. We wish you good luck with this now!
