How do I defragment my hard drive?

As you store and delete files, your computer saves pieces of them wherever there is room on the drive. After a while, this can slow your system down from bits and pieces of files being scattered all over the drive.

The way you can fix this issue is to defragment your hard drive. Go to "Start", then "Programs", and "Accessories", followed by "System Tools" and finally "Disk Defragmenter".

Defragmenting your hard drive can take a while, depending on the size of the drive. Plan on performing this task when you won't need to use your computer for a while.
