    It will run faster if you do, when the files aren't fragmented the disk will have less work to do when it loads them, so it will load them faster.

    nope, it's just that people have been saying that you should for years, but I've NEVER honestly noticed any difference after I do. And it's annoying because disk defrag takes too long.

    Jeez, I would think with your setup that a defrag would only take a few minutes.

    I use Diskeeper. I have it set to Screensaver mode so it defrags whilst I'm doing other things like sleeping, sleeping at work or sleeping at uni.

    I wondered whether anyone else saw that or if maybe my monitor(s) were overclocked too far.

    defrag. it really helps

    i've been downloading a lot of dvdr images recently, and i have to extract them. i just defraged a few days ago, and before that, extracting a 4.5 gig image takes a lot longer than after i defrag.
