Speed up your computer with Disk Defragmenter

Over time your hard drive becomes a jumble of disorganised files and empty space. The Disk Defragmenter tool will tidy things up and help Windows to access your files faster.

1. Delete any old files, empty the Recycle Bin, and close any open programs.

2. Turn off your screen saver (more info).

3. Press Start > All Programs > Accessories > System Tools > Disk Defragmenter.

4. The Disk Defragmenter window will open (Fig. 1). Click the Analyze button. Windows® will now scan your hard drive.

5. Once completed you will be told if the drive need to be defragmented. Click OK.

6. If you need to defragment, click the Defragment button.

7. The scan will begin, this can take several hours and is best left over night.
