Defragmentation is reorganizing file storage on a hard disk partition. Defragmentation is the process of eliminating file fragmentation, which causes files to be spread across the disk after disk operations. File fragmentation significantly reduces PC and server performance, especially when there are intensive I/O operations. Conversely, file defragmentation can increase performance, as the read head has to move less across the disk to read all file parts.

Defragmentation as the following steps:

  1. 1. Select a partition to defragment
  2. 2. Right-click the partition and Select Defragment, or select in the main menu Partitions > Defragment
  3. 3. By Clicking OK to run partition defragmentation; the results are shown in the Defragmentation window.
