What is Disk Defragmentation?
If your pc runs slow, your disk files fragmented which means saves data in pieces. Your disk reads data slow and what is the solution for this then you have to try this thing. But what exactly Disk fragmentation is.
For example, When you go to the library there was a section for different types of books. Like storybooks, GK books and all are separated in their sections. But after sometimes a new pair of GK books cames to the library. And due to lack of space in GK bookshelf, the librarian decides to put half of the books in an empty Shelf of GK books and others in the storybook shelf. Untill a new bookshelf get some space in the library.
In the same way, the system works in Disk but space is limited and data stored in a sequence. When you buy new pc, your disk is empty. Then with time, you start adding some data like some files. And all files stored in sequence, in a line. But when you delete a data which is in the middle of the sequence then space gets empty (suppose the file is of 10mb). And when you add a new file (suppose the file is of 20mb) which is bigger than the previous file.
Due to the bigger size of the new file, it will not fit in that empty space. So your disk fragments your file into pieces and fills that empty space and another fragmented file at end of the sequence. Due to this, disk reads data slowly. Because disk reads every data in sequence and it takes time to do this. And so your Pc runs slow. So how to fix this?
Disk defragmentation. When you start disk defragmentation, the file of 20mb (used as example) gets together and stores in a sequence. In the same way all fragmented files cames together with their files and gets disfregmented and Because of this your disk reads file easily and works faster then before.
Defregmentation of SSD?
No, not a good idea for SSD, SSD not needed to be defragmented. Because SSD has a different structure then HDD. SSD have a bunch of chips rather than moving parts in HDD which reads data. But SSD has other option you can optimize your SSD. If you think your SSD working slow then try to optimize your SSD.
So if your pc runs slow then try to Defragmentation. This is all about the Defragmentation of Disk. Share with your friends if you think this information is helpful. Thanks for visiting.
