Automatic Defrag Software Keeps Workstations and Servers Running At Maximum Performance

Any successful business person knows that when it comes to making a sound investment, proper research is an absolute must. Only after carefully weighing the pros and cons of the investment in question, can a suitable decision be made. Of course, evaluating a software investment is no different, and with regard to defrag software especially, the incorrect choice can significantly affect the performance of your servers and workstations in the future.

Now, what exactly is defragmentation (defrag)? To understand, we must first cover its opposite — fragmentation. Fragmentation can be defined as whole files that are broken up in to numerous pieces and scattered to various locations on the hard drive. Fragmentation also occurs through the wiping out of continuous free space across the hard drive. Although unknown to some, fragmentation builds up on a computer every single time you use it.

Inevitably, as time goes on, we find that our systems mysteriously begin to gradually slowdown and even freeze completely – wasting our time and backlogging our workload.

Of course, you don’t have to take my word for it. Check out Windows IT Pro’s The Impact of Disk Fragmentation whitepaper, by Joe Kinsella.

To remedy this fragmentation, you need software. Defrag software is fairly inexpensive and clearly gets the job done, taking your systems through a “fountain of youth” of sorts, restoring them to their initial functionality and performance and then some.

Computers cost money and we work hard for it. For most of us, a sudden computer crash would be disastrous. The additional time and money necessary to repair it can sometimes be irreplaceable.

We owe it to ourselves to install defrag software. It will help us make up for time lost in the past, and ensure our computers a promising future.
