Question about Acer Aspire 5050-3242 Notebook
Hi. my computer is been running really slow. and one of the the other tech told me to check my hard drive and see if i at least have 28% of free space. well on my C drive ive got 40% and on my D drive i have 7%. i was wonder if i defragment my drives would that harm my computer? basically will i lose some of my programs? i will appreciate it if you could help me.
A defragmenter only rearranges the fragmented files back together contiguously to improve file access time. It doesnt delete anything.
As a general rule, the built in tool requires about 15-20% free space to move stuff about. You can try running diskcleanup to free up space. But even if you cant, you can try one of the new automatic defragmenters which defrag with even as less as 5% free space.

Hey defraging your HD will not cause you to lose any programs also you may need to do a fresh install. Also have you checked for viruses or mass sypware?
