We’ve all had those days when we’re not exactly moving at our best. Whether it’s because we’re sick, tired or just unmotivated there are those moments when we just can’t seem to find the right gear to get moving. Whenever we hit this mode it becomes painfully obvious to those around us that while we might be present there is little chance that we will be of any help to a problem or situation that may arise.
In similar fashion our computers can run through the same kind of scenario in which it just doesn’t seem to be operating at its optimal speed and in reality it becomes counterproductive. The difference between our lackadaisical day and the slow performance of our computer is that we can usually pull ourselves out of our own sluggishness while our computer requires our assistance.
If that assistance doesn’t come quick enough we will have a much bigger problem than just a slow computer on our hands.
While understanding how a computer works isn’t a requirement, knowing what can cause problems is certainly beneficial for anybody that wants to ensure they are going to maximize its life. For those interested in prolonging the usefulness of their computer learning about fragmentation should be at the top of their list.
