defragmenting

Depends on how much you put into and take out of your HD realy

If you are putting a lot on and off maybe once a week but more commonly around once a month.

You can do it while on line but it will slow your PC down quite a bit

 

How big is your drive, do you have it partitioned?

Partitioning is splitting your hard drive into more than one section so you end up with C: D: E: etc drives on the one disk.

Can be a help in fending off viruses.

Ususaly you would split C: as your windows drive of around 10 - 15Gbs (different people will tell you different sizes for this one comes down to experience)

You can then have one of 105gbs or divvy it up as you see fit, you know, work, porn, emails, porn, photo's , LOS porn etc.

If you have never defragged your drive now would be a good time to do it before you get anymore in there.

Once you've had your machine for a year or so you might find boot up times and response times deminish thats when you would consider re installing windows.

Unfortunatley with only one partition that will mean formating the whole thing, then's the time you want to get someone to guide you through partitioning, which leaves the rest of your data intact if you ever need to reinstall again

I defrag it about once a week mate. I'll read the rest what you said when i have more time to read.

 

Cheers

Once a week is probably to much, unless your copying large amounts of data all the time or using a large percentage of your hard disk.

 

You can degfrag anytime your prepared to put up with the slowdown it creates.

 

You can also degfrag specific programs on the more recent windows. This is usefull if your only really running/care about one application.

i'd go with mackilt's advice! if you download a lot like i do then it is best to partiton your drive & save all the files in a new drive! as with defragging, do it at least once a month while you're not using the pc. use raxco perfect disk or o & o defrag :D

I have never degfraged my NTFS drive, it is meant to be that good, that degraging is pointless.

 

i would only recommend it with a FAT32 system.

 

 

 

". Additionally, modern file systems such as NTFS are designed to decrease the likelihood of fragmentation. [6] Improvements in modern hard drives such as RAM cache, faster platter rotation speed, and greater data density reduce the negative impact of fragmentation on system performance to some degree, though increases in commonly used data quantities offset those benefits. However, modern systems profit enormeously from the huge disk capacities currently available, since partly filled disks fragment much less than full disks. [7] In any case, these limitations of defragmentation have led to design decisions in modern operating systems like Windows Vista to automatically defragment in a background process but not to attempt to defragment a volume 100% because doing so would only produce negligible performance gains. [8]"

I only use NTFS but still find that things improve when I defrag.

I just use the windows application, I do download quite a bit of music and Sky movies so end up with stuff scattered around the drives.

NTFS does improve access over FAT32 but I still find an improvment after a defrag.

 

Unless you have set your drives to Dynamic Bryan, I'm not sure how that effects fragmentation.

Even NTFS file systems and the modern drives are not immune to fragmentation. Look at the way PCs are being used nowadays, intensive gaming, multimedia, P2P, with just the downloads from the internet or from ur digicam, the largest of drives can get fragmented fast. If you have the so called large state of the art HDDs, you are probably using them for the above mentioned activites. Our university has numerous systems that simply cannot afford to crawl or stutter which they *do* if left fragmented. we use a defragmenter that monitors and defrags automatically to keep the drives giving their optimum performance. Noone can tell you how often you need to defragment as it depends on your usage. But if your drive is fragmented, you will definitely see an improvement after a defrag, unless you are used to lags and dont really make out a difference.

Win XP can analyze your drives & tell you whether or not they need defragging. I am like Bryan. That whole shit is a bad memory from Win 98 & FAT32 Garbage.

 

I never drfrag & never need to.

I have about 4 Tera on my computer. large amount of dling also encoding videos files. still havent seen performance drop. Most of my files are stored on my hard drives. Unless your fat32 defrag very useful so clearing you temp files, clearing up your unused task will speed your computer up. *ctrl+alt+dlt*

perhaps you should note the difference between defragging and running a quick scan to see if you need to defrag 99 times out of 100 you can just defrag and cure any little problems you may have but that other time it can cause huge amounts of trouble , the idea is that you analize and it will tell you to defrag or not , if not then you should leave it , problem is that is not always the best advice as the 17 problems showing up are not in the systems opinion viable to fix with a defrag, but one of those problems is a pain in the butt that is driving you up the wall and defragging is a quick cure , I find a large hammer cures most of thse computer problems, ie you cant win!

I check that from time to time and only tend to defrag when it tells me that it's necessary.

 

I download a lot of music and move it from folder to folder whilst updating my data bases. I also back my downloaded music files up at the same time as I move them to a permanent folder.

After 10 mins of system idle time, XP will begin to initiate an automatic defragmentation routine - which is why the hard drive light flickers merrily away despite having no active programs. It generally does this every 3 days, but can be turned off with a modified registry entry or by using TweakUI for XP (uncheck 'optimize hard disk while idle').

    • For those that don't know, I did Friday meetings before many years ago,  I feel like we are missing a regular meeting for members,  I am aware guys meet at PA affiliated bars. But I want to start meeting people again, I'm inviting the guys following my YouTube also.

      The meetings is a chance to get to meet each other,  I plan to be at every meeting, I also have Dean from Dive bar that has offered to help out with a crawl after.
      The meetings will be  Monday  6 pm - 8 pm each week.  (The improvised bar crawl will commence at 8 p.m.  Dean will make his own plans for that.)

      Due to low numbers of people in town, I will start the meetings in our bars to help our girls and managers, please check back often incase things are changed.  I will be sharing the love around town later, but Soi 6 is first on my list (including bars that are friendly competition)   
      If bar owners want us to have a meeting at their bar,  they need to have a minimum of 10 girls.  I'm not dragging people to empty bars for favours.
      Please help us invite other members, it takes a while to get momentum.
      Monday 6 pm - 8pm  (then bar crawl after)
      21st March - Playpen Soi 6
      28th March - Night wish bar Soi 6
      4th April - Toy Box bar Soi 6
      11th April - Repent Soi 6
      18th April - where angels play Soi 6
      25th April -  (next bar we have open)

      2nd May - (next bar we have open)
      9th May - Cooters bar soi 6 
      16th May - Hot shots bar Soi 6
      23rd May - (next bar we have open)
      30th of May - Lust soi 6 
      6th of June - Illuzion
