Defragmenting you computer.. well let me try to explaing it to you When you working a office, there are filing cabinets, full of files some old, some new Some of the files need to be shredded or put into another filing cabinet So what do you do? You go through the files organizing them and putting all the related infomation in order so that you can find it faster the next time you need it.

Defragmenting your computer is the same thing, cleaning up and organizing so that you can retreive infomation faster the next time you need it So the next time you want to defragment go ahead, but you better make time because dependig on your infomation it may take awhile.
