never really got the fuss about defragmenters, so I think it's a good start to ask some questions.
what are defragmenters for?
why use them so frequently? (all I know is that they have something to do with files. in what way?)
what would be the performance improvement of the use of such an utility? percentage-wise for a 40 GB HD that has never been defragmented since bought :) would I see an increase in peroformance?
are any other defragmenters around other then what windows comes with? some links would be great.
how about Linux.. never heard anyone mention defragmenters for Linux boxes...?
maybe I'll have more questions. but this is it for now. thanks.
