Win 2000 Disk Defragmentation



The computer has been used for a long time and a large number of files are saved on the disk. These files are not stored on a continuous disk space but a file is scattered in many places. These scattered files are called 'disk fragments' and these fragments will reduce the performance of the entire Windows. So Windows provides a program to defragment the disk. (See Figure 1)

Open the \u0026ldquo;Start\u0026rdquo; menu move the mouse to \u0026ldquo;Programs\u0026rdquo; \u0026ldquo;Attachments\u0026rdquo; \u0026Ldquo;System Tools\u0026rdquo; click on \u0026ldquo;Disk Defragmenter\u0026rdquo;. (See Figure 2)

The 'Disk Defragmenter' under Windows 2000 is very different from Windows 98. Generally we first let the program analyze the disk usage select the C drive and click 'Analyze'. (See Figure 3) The status bar below the window shows the current operation progress. Soon the analysis is over and at the same time it will give a suggestion whether it needs to be defragmented. Now the program suggests defragmentation.

In the following 'Analysis' column you can also see the distribution of files. The red part is scattered files and the white part is a blank area. We can also take a look at the analysis report and click 'View Report'. (Picture four)

A pop-up report the upper column shows the basic information of the C drive (volume) and the distribution ratio of fragments The most fragmented file list below. Click \u0026ldquo;defragment\u0026rdquo; (see Figure 5) the program starts to defragment. This process takes a long time mainly related to the number of files and the size of the partition.
