Go to Control Panel, Select System and select the Advance Tab. Now Select Settings Under Performance and again select the advance tab. Under Virtual Memory select Change. Make sure that the Paging File Size for selected Drive for the Drive partition you want to Defrag has either a custom at least 2 times the amount of installed RAM if the space is available or is set to System Managed Size.

Hope this helps :)

How can I defrag my Dell optiplex760?


How to Defrag a Dell Computer
1. Open the My Computer window. To do this on a Dell computer, click on the "Start" button at the bottom of the screen. Then, click "My Computer".
2. Choose the hard disk drive that you want to defrag. Locate the section entitled "Hard Disk Drives." In this section is a list of hard drives on the computer. For most Dell computers, the hard disk drive you will want to defrag is Local Disk (C:).
3. Right-click on the hard disk drive you want to defrag on the Dell computer. If you want to defrag your C: drive, then right-click on "Local Disk (C:)". A menu bar will appear.
4. Click on "Properties." "Properties" is the last option on the menu bar. This opens the Local Disk (C:) Properties window.
5. Click the "Tools" tab. The Tools tab is the second tab in the Local Disk (C:) Properties window. The tabs are located on the top of the window.
6. Click the "Defragment Now" button. The "Defragment Now" button is in the Defragmentation section of the window. This opens the Disk Defragmenter window.
7. Click to select the disk drive you want to defrag on a Dell computer and then click "Defragment." For most Dell computers, this will be (C:). After you click "Defragment," the Dell computer will first analyze the disk drive you selected and then beginning defragging the Dell computer.
8. Wait for the "Defragmentation is Complete" message. If you have not defragged a Dell computer in a long time, then the defragging process might take a while, even as long as an hour for very fragmented Dell computers. Allow the Dell computer to run the defrag until the process is completed. You will know that the Dell computer has completed the defrag process when the "Defragmentation is Complete" message appears.
9. View the defrag report and then close the window. If you want to view the defrag report, click "View Report." Otherwise, click "Close" to close the window.

My hard drive suddebly crash!!help


Why Disk Fragments a problem?

Any storage action on the magnetic disk like creating, deleting, moving, updating and copying files will lead to fragmentation and consequent performance loss. As time goes by, this accumulation of fragments on your hard disk becomes bigger and bigger. As the hard disk reads and merges these separate fragments every time you open a file, they will eventually cause problems such as system slowdowns, PC crashes, slow startup and shutdown, and will even shorten the life span of your hard drive. That is why defragmentation is so important for your entire computer system.



Advanced Defrag – The better and easier defrag solution!

You may find various defrag programs in the market, they may look the same, but many of them lack of ability to
effectively defrag all the MFT (Master File Table), they will automatically skip certain system files with extensions
such as DLL, INI, COM etc during the defragment thus left remnant fragments after each defragment action, it can
also easily get halted while defragging which is very user-unfriendly.


Advanced Defrag rectified all the cons above from these defragmenters, and the efficiency is even better. Its advanced
defragment arithmetic not only enables you to fast defrag, but also defrag completely and thoroughly. If you would
like to give your PC hard disk a completely care and experience the most efficient defrag technology, Advanced
Defrag is the perfect choice for you.



How it works?

Your hard disk controls a magnetic head which searches the areas where the parts of the required file are located,
reads the data and transfers these fragments to the disk cache or EMS memory. The time this takes is called the
average seek time. The average seek time of most hard drives is less than 9.5 millisecond. The Advanced Defrag
program is able to collect the various fragments of each file and store them very quickly into contiguous space on
the hard disk which greatly reduces the seek time of the magnetic head. Better file reading and writing speed is
provided as a result. It does make a difference if you have got used to work and play with a fast and smooth system.
It also helps to prevent premature hard drive problems and retrieve the data in the event of a drive crash.

Always need disk cleanup


Open up the Computer icon and right-click on your c: drive. Then click on Properties, then on Disk Cleanup. Once this has completed, you might want to run Defrag as well, in Tools, then Defrag, then Defrag Now. You might also think about Drive Compression too, to make more effective drive room.

When i install windows xp i done it 2 times


What exactly do you mean? Well, you can always format the drive. This will delete everything on it, and then you can install Windows and start from scratch. But if you want to keep intact all your data and files, then you have the option of defragmenting the drive.
How to defragment: Go to "Start -> All Programs ->Accessories -> System Tools -> Disk Defragmenter". You can select the drive you want to defragment and press on "Defragment" button. Defragmenting helps you free up space
