Defragment



It tells me it doesn't need to be defragged.

But it also tells me that the disk is 5% fragmented and the files are 11% fragmented.

Do I defrag?

Not critical, you can if you want to, but you won't notice any huge improvement at that level.

Nods - but also make sure that you have spare capacity on the disk ( 20% or more free is good ). Otherwise things slow down trying to find gaps to store files.
