if i may

Just a quick question! When was the last time you defragmented your Hard Drive?

I just ran a quick check to see how bad mine was and here is the report:

Volume (C:)
Volume size = 49.81 GB
Cluster size = 4 KB
Used space = 45.04 GB
Free space = 4.77 GB
Percent free space = 9 %

Volume fragmentation
Total fragmentation = 11 %
File fragmentation = 19 %
Free space fragmentation = 3 %

File fragmentation
Total files = 110,469
Average file size = 494 KB
Total fragmented files = 9,727
Total excess fragments = 55,345
Average fragments per file = 1.50

Pagefile fragmentation
Pagefile size = 768 MB
Total fragments = 1

Folder fragmentation
Total folders = 8,168
Fragmented folders = 562
Excess folder fragments = 2,170

Master File Table (MFT) fragmentation
Total MFT size = 125 MB
MFT record count = 118,934
Percent MFT in use = 93 %
Total MFT fragments = 7

When my 250Gig portable is finished being "checked" for errors I will transfer some files across to free up the 15% so I can defrag the drive!!
