    That depends on how long ago was it last defragmented. And what software you use as a defragmenter.

    It&#39;ll depend partially on how long it&#39;s been since the last time you did it.... the more often you defrag - generally the less time it will take.

    "system mechanic" << this would be your problem. It&#39;s making a mess and moving things where they don&#39;t belong. Breaking things up into sections instead of keeping everything close together like it&#39;s supposed to be.
    It takes a while to f**k up a drive this way.

    I wouldn&#39;t. There&#39;s no need to mess with things if the system is properly maintained. If there&#39;s something that won&#39;t defrag, then there are other methods that will work or repairs are needed.

    That&#39;s a long time. Well I use the defragmenter that comes with Windows. I&#39;ve had no problems with it. Have you been moving/deleting huge chunks of data frequently?
