I wonder how often you use defragmenters.
Vista 64 bit OS weekly
Real-time defragmentation with Diskeeper 2010.
Once a week, that's all that you'll ever need.
Once a week I think it is more than enough
Pretty much not anymore since large drives, NTFS, and XP.
HDD: Once a month
I only defrag my hard drives once a month to around every two months.
Laptop once a month or 2
PC (had 3-5% space remaining on C drive for the last 2 years... no point defragmenting that)
Background automatic defrag.
Everyday i analyse fragmentation of drives. If its high (more than 10%) ill do a defragmentation.
StealthPatrol automatic defrag with PerfectDisk 10.
Every week or when i move big files or install games/applications
I use MyDefrag and its script runs daily here.
depends. In XP after adding or removing a large file or program.
vista can defrag more file types than xp, win7 can defrag even more file types and auto-defrags in the background. Much better defragmenting in Win7, this is scheduled by default to defrag 1am Wednesdays in Win7. I haven't changed this setting, sometimes my computer isn't on all night, or if I install a large game in Win7 I defrag, overall I'd say once a week in Win7 as it is configured to do by default.
Once a year
why people say once a week is enough? maybe for them but if you run too much data and you install and uninstall a lot you need to run a defrag at east twice a week
My AV automatically does it for me every three months. Seems like a good arrangement...
True, some people say once a month, thats too long even for normal use, the HDD gets fragmented extremely fast
It takes my XP about 2 months or so to get over 2% fragmented, so that's when I do my defrag.
people with SSD are the luckiest they never has to defrag their solid state drive
Well your computer specs says all, you are having a gaming computer and this means installing heavy games, making images of them,saving checkpoints and so on... and this makes your HD fragmented so it is more often for you. But for some of them computers are mainly used for daily work so it isn't required for them.
I too have a gaming computer with same specs as of yours(accept the large LCD screen and backup battery ) I have to defrag it quite often like once in a day and sometimes even twice
Once a day when the computer is not used for 30 minutes with Auslogics Disk Defrag.
About once a month (MyDefrag) for my Windows partition. And never for Linux.
Other. Only before I make an image. I don't do that very frequently. Say once a 2 months.
