Using the Windows Disk Defragmenter
To access the Windows Disk Defragmenter, click on Start > Programs > Accessories > System Tools > Disk Defragmenter. A window similar to Figure 138 appears.
The currently available hard drives (floppy disks and rewritable CDRoms cannot be defragged) are listed, along with 2 options; Analyze and Defrag. The first task is to check the fragmentation state of a drive. Click on the C: drive in the volume window, and click the Analyze button. Defrag will scan the disk, and then present you with a graphical representation of the disk fragmentation.
In this case the C: disk is very fragmented, so it would be sensible to click the Defragment button and leave Defrag to work away. It is advisable to defrag disks on a regular basis, dependant on the amount of data transferred to and from them.
