Defrag Your System and Boost Performance

Defragmentation Software Increases Overall System Performance, Employee Production and Can Help Balance Your Corporate Budget

For many of us, it has become routine to replace a slow workstation. We recall how fast it used to be, but are unable to determine the cause of this increased system performance slowdown. Of course, instead of replacing such workstations, we should simply defrag them.

The scenario is typical. When brand new, workstations are the envy of any corporate office. They help increase employee production and company viability. However, sooner then we would like, it is observed that these relatively new workstations begin showing signs of unbearable slowdown. It is determined that based on the average workstation lifespan, they should be replaced. Shortly thereafter, the above scenario repeats itself…adding an increased dent to your corporate budget.

Of course, this is a common misconception that occurs daily in corporate America. With strict corporate security policies in place to keep viruses and such at bay, we are convinced that our workstations will generally be able to maintain an ideal and consistent performance level. Unfortunately, we soon discover that this simply isn’t the case. Eventually, employees begin to feel the affects of a mysterious illness that plagues their hard drive, wreaking havoc on files and performance. This illness is commonly referred to as fragmentation.

It has been proven that fragmentation occurs on all workstations, regardless of how minimal their usage. In fact, Diskeeper Corporation, developers of Diskeeper 2007 defragmentation software, recently ran a two week experiment using only Microsoft Internet Explorer and Microsoft Word. The test was performed using an ordinary workstation and began with zero excess file fragments. The results showed that without defrag software, over 4,500 file fragments were generated in that short two week period. Keeping this in mind, we can easily see how file fragments add up fairly quickly and affect overall system performance. More details regarding this experiment are contained in the Myths of Fragmentation feature at Diskeeper’s Website.

Defrag software is the only truly automatic solution to tackle this increasingly critical issue and boost system performance. But, don’t take my word for it. Download free trialware and see for yourself.
