How To Defrag Your Pc Quickly And Easily

If your computer is running slow it may seem like a good idea to defrag your computers drive. But maybe you were told that it needed to be done by someone else, and you don’t know what it means. That’s okay.

Basically, when you defrag your computers hard drive, your computer moves files around so they are easier to access. Because the files are easier to access it makes the computer quicker to find them and use them. Think of it this way. Lets say I had a list of 1000 names for guests at a party of mine.
