I am a computer technician with degrees in microcomputer suport and repair. How often you defragment your drive really depends on what you use it for. If you dont do a lot of deleting and adding of things, it is going to need to be defragmented more often. I recomment to most of my customers to defrag monthly. I personally do it more. I saw in one response that someone said not to do it daily because it is hard on the computer. Actually that isnt quite correct. I dont know if you have ever defraged and then turned around and did it again immediately. Since it has nothing to do, it is done in no time at all. There are actually some defrag utilities that can be purchased that can defrag for you daily using a schedule. Here is a link to an article explaining exactly what defrag does. www.compuking.us/defragmenter.html
