I'm running Win2k, but I had the same problem in NT4 with the exception of one program, which I'll get to in a minute. Two of my partitions should be deframented, according to Win2k's built in defragmenting tool, which is Diskkeeper as far as I can tell. I tell it to defragment the drive.
I had resized the partition using GParted earlier, but did not defragment it prior to resizing mainly both because I found out that this was recommended after I had resized the partition and because I resized the partition just after setting up the computer for the first time on Windows XP and I assumed that the drive was defragmented by the OEM before shipment. I think this might be a consequence of me not defragmenting the partition prior to resizing it. If it is, is there any way I can fix it without reformatting?
Defragging your PC is one of the most important things you can do to ensure high PC performance. Defragmenting, puts these fragmented files back in order so that the drive can call up data faster. Think of your computer as a bunch of alphabet blocks.
