Defrag Software Ensures Your Computer Doesnt Sputter To A Halt

In today’s fast paced business world, who doesn’t want the highest performing system they can have? With the constant advancements in CPU technology, computers continue to play a vital role in getting the job done. However, there is a problem. No matter how fast your processor is, the money invested in its purchase could easily be wasted if you don’t implement defrag software to address the weakest (slowest) link in the chain: Your computer’s hard drive.

Believe it or not, the hard drive is the bottleneck in any computing system. And it doesn’t matter how fast or how new that system is, the computer is going to slow down and have problems if the situation isn’t fixed.

The question is what causes this slowdown? In a word: Fragmentation. Hard drive fragmentation is defined as pieces of files on hard drives that are not continuous but instead are scattered around the drive. Now, each time you access files, fragmentation continues to increase within them on even a larger scale. Eventually, the computer crashes, putting a dent in production.

Like sludge in a high performance vehicle, fragmentation quickly builds up on the hard drive and gunks up the works. Just like sludge, information can’t flow properly, and performance suffers. And, just like sludge, the wear and tear on your hardware leads to actual damage to the disk, meaning a failed drive and early replacement.

Of course, just like with any vehicle, regular scheduled “service” through the use of defrag software can prevent all this.
