How to Defragment PC?


Defragmentation reduces data access time and allows storage to be used more efficiently. The movement of the hard drive's read/write heads over different areas of the disk when accessing fragmented files is slower, compared to accessing the entire contents of a non-fragmented file sequentially without moving the read/write heads to seek other fragments. PC Win Booster scans local drives and makes decisions, whether defragmentation is needed to the each local drive.
