    Hi guys,

    Ive heard several different things about defragging my laptop, one says you should never do it, the other says it should be done once a month...

    whats your opinion?

    Definitely do it ....how often depends how you use the PC.......Check it about once a month on normal usage sounds OK....but if you download a lot of files or install programs then check every 2 weeks.

    I defrag even when it say its not needed ..it always runs better afterwards.

    Personally, I don't defrag. I find that it doesn't do much for me. It is a personal preference though.
