i hear its a good idea to defragment once a month....however when i click "analyze" it almost always tells me "I do not need to defragment..."I know I install & uninstall things all the time.& I download & delete large files like music & video files all the time too.So do I still defrag even though it says i dont need to?

Well, its wont damage anything if you do it once a month. But if it says your computer is fine then maybe do a defrag 1 every 2 months.

Cool :whistling:

Well, I would think so. It puts your HD through alot of strain if you do, do it to often. When I defrag, I defrag about 1nce every 6 months.

Defragging once enough is fine. Even if it says that you don't need to defrag your harddrive, do it anyways, because if there really isn't much to defrag, the defragment process will take a minute or two, which doesn't strain your hard drive in the least.
