In everyday use of the computer, we use it in various tasks, both directly in our work, running programs such as Excel or Word, and in our personal use, such as using online games and search engines; as we configure them as indirect tasks with programs that automatically perform their function, such as anti-virus. All of this leads to data storage on the hard drive. On hard drives, we generally make partitions to organize what they have, such as programs and personal information.
The truth is, this internal storage doesn’t work the way we think it should; because they are all these objects directly manages and stores the operating system in this case Windows, quick access to them when needed, What happens is that it stores them in a messy way and takes up unnecessary space due to the slow operation of the reading and writing work, which is called division. In this article we will look at how to solve this problem.
What should you keep in mind before defragmenting and optimizing your disks?

It should be done when the computer is not in use, if the disk is of the HDD type, because we can do this task for those who suffer from this disease.
Defragmentation on mechanical hard drives or HDDs only
Is this it? the slowing occurs because the part is scattered they cause confusion on every object on the hard drive, which takes longer to find when the computer finds them, which causes the task to take longer to complete than needed, i.e. what the division is, that is, to be fixed.
if we have An HDD is a mechanical drive and the computer goes slowWe can fix it by following the process of defragmenting Windows 10 so that we can organize all of these scattered parts so that when we need to get into a task it can be done efficiently and quickly.
