Yeah it takes a while, what I do is leave it on while I sleep and it should be done by the next morning. Depending on your HDD size it can take anywhere from 2-3 hours. I haven't done it in a while... If you were really anal, once every month? I would once every 3-6 months.

Like for mine it would stop at 10% for a while, and then after like 30-45minutes, it'll progress.

I defrag whenever the drive is about 20-25% fragmented. 1 of my drives is at 70%!!! so i guess it's about time.

I download about 4-6gb per day so stuff gets pretty fragmented quickly.

You can "analyze" the drive before you actually defrag.. That'll tell you the % and stuff I think.

i have disk keeper cracked here at work so if u want it u can either dl the setup.exe on ur own and i can supply u wit the keygen or crack...i forget which one is needed to get it to be fully working. that takes no time at all to defrag ur drive. also O&O defrag is another great defrag program ive used on my home computer for a long time.

Your hand must be tired.


NationsMostWanted,
The larger your hard drive, the longer the defragment process will take.

deleting/rewriting stuff is what fragments the drive.

As soon as I've finished a season I delete it .....and that's usually like 5-8gb.

ANd I'm always downloading games...trying them out....then deleting them.
