Diskfragment Your Hard Drive

To compliment this site and all the online computer tutorials on offer I have setup a computer help forum where you can go to ask your questions.

How do I diskfragment my hard drive in Windows XP?

This is quite a simple procedure all you need to do is follow the steps below.

Left click with your mouse on the Start button located at the bottom left corner of the screen.
Left click on All Programs
Left click on Accessories.
Left click on System Tools.
Left click on Disk Defragmenter.
This will open up a window where you will be given the choice to either Analyze or Defragment
Click on Analyze and Windows will check if you need to Defragment your hard drive.
This process of checking should only take a couple of minutes.
After analyze has completed a pop up window will appear giving you the option to view report or Defragment.
You should click on Defragment.
This process can take quite a long time I myself would do this on the night time before I go to bed,
that way you can just leave it to run through the night.
