     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.
