I just received the July Issue of Smart computing Magazine in the mail. In this issue I have a 3-page spread on how to defragment your computer completely and properly.

Before you yawn too loudly, there are a lot of things that you can do to tweak a defragmentation to squeeze some extra performance out of your hard drive.

To get all of the tips you have to be a subscriber or buy the magazine on the news stand, but in my article I talk about defragmenting your virtual memory page file, using third party defrag utilities that can be more thorough than the Windows Disk Defragmenter, and address the question of how often you should defragment your drive.

How Often Should I Defragment My Hard Drive?

In the article, I break computer users into three categories – Minimal, Moderate, and Advanced Users. Depending on your usage, you should defragment your drive anywhere from daily to once a month.

If there is an article you would like to see in Smart computing Magazine, let me know and I would be happy to get it in front of the editors there.
