What does defragging do?
Over time files and the hard drive itself becomes fragmented as your computer slows down and it has to look in many different places to find and open a file.
Disk Defragmenter is a utility that arranges the data on your hard drive and puts fragmented files back together so that your computer can run efficiently.
