One thought on “42% of PC users never defragment their PCs

  1. Guess thats true, had a friend whose system was not moving an inch:D on clicking any task and when i asked him if he had checked his drive for fragmentation, he replied “whats that”. when i alalyzed the drive it looked seemed in a bad shape, severely fragged and just 3% free space! Its important to know the PC, its maintenance and right way of use just as its important to know about one’s own body and health. Well, similar results are likely to turn up on a poll conducted on the latter as well.
