How to Make your PC run Faster For Free:
In a new computer your hard disk is relatively empty,so when you install a program or save some files it stores it in one block.Being a new PC when you want to excess these files, the computer gets that information very fast since its located in block.
But as you go on adding files ,installing programs, your hard drive begins to fill up. When you delete files,uninstall programs or move files within the disk,empty spaces or gaps are created (space occupied by a deleted file).
After sometime whenever you install some programs or saving some music files,photos etc, your computer no longer saves these data’s in a block. Instead it will save these data’s in pieces in those empty spaces.
The end result is that your files are stored in pieces in every nooks and corner of your hard disk. This is what we call as fragmented hard disk. So when you try to access those files surely your computer will fetch it for you. But will take a much longer time since it has to collect all those pieces of data of the same file and display it in your screen.
So Whats the solution ? Defrag your hard disk. Disk defragmenters are software which does the job of eliminating those small gaps of empty space by bringing the bits of the same file in to one location /block. There by making it easier to access those files and increasing the speed of your computer.
