Disk Defragmenter

If you want to speed up your Windows® operating system, there is a simple way to do it. Your computer’s System Tools folder contains a Disk Defragmenter. This tool organizes and arranges your hard disk drive clusters by removing gaps between data clusters. Without the gaps, your computer speeds up since the system doesn’t have to jump between clusters.

This tool is available in Windows® 7. If you have difficulties finding it and are not sure how to use it, just follow the instructions below.

Using Defragmenter in Windows® 7:

  1. Click the “Start” button on your desktop, click on “All Programs” and then click the “Accessories” folder.
  2. Select the “System Tools” subfolder.
  3. Click on the “Disk Defragmenter” option.
  4. To analyze whether your disk needs defragmenting, click on the “Analyze disk” button.
  5. If defragmentation is recommended, a window will appear suggesting you complete the process. Click on the “Defragment disk” button to fix your system.

Tips and Tricks:

Even if your system does not recommend defragmentation, you can decide on your own to defrag your hard drive. After the analysis, check the “Last Run” column of the current status chart and review the percentage of fragmented clusters to assist in your decisionmaking.
