View Full Version : Another defrag question



11-07-2001, 04:52 PM
I use Norton System works speed disk to defrag. The problem I'm having is the degree of fragmentation occuring. Case in point; I defraged last night after noticing 98% fragmentation, now just 24hrs later my hard drive has reached 98% fragmentation already. What gives? How can I get my computer to organise itself better?

open speed disk, open properties, open optoins, put tick in reserve slack. also tick verify writes, it will slow it down a bit but it can save you from losing data due to faults.

the other thing could be the swap file becoming fragmented. the trick to stop this is to put in a minimum swapfile size that is slightly bigger than what you would normally use. do not put a max size in. i use min 500meg.
