While we wait for new technologies to help us and speed up our computer, we can perform some analysis and actions. The best action we can take is defragmentation. One of the best applications we have used to defragment our HD is called Defraggler.
If you want to know something else, we can tell you that it is developed by the same company that brought you Recuva and CCleaner.
We should stand out that most defragmentation tools only let you defrag the whole drive, but Defraggler gives you the power to select individual files and folders to defrag.
When you'll defragment your HD, you'll realize that your PC will run faster because the access speed will be higher and that means that your PC will read files faster to charge them.
Don't hesitate, you should defragment your HD at least once a month, and we recommend you to use Defraggler.
