As I've pointed out previously, there are several aspects to keeping your computer in top shape. And while we at Raxco understand the importance of defragmentation, we know there are other things you can do. From time to time, we'll see articles in the press that might have a Top 10 list, or a Top 5 list. They might include "tweaking" your system, cleaning your registry, making sure you have solid programs only on your PC, and a lot more.
I came across a recent article by Entrepreneur.com's Ramon Ray in AOL's Small Business section entitled "Seven Steps to a Healthy PC." Ray has is own list , which also includes the advice to defragment your hard drive on a regular basis. While it's no surprise that I would agree with his statement, what I wanted to point out was his recommendation for the frequency of defragmenting. Whether you're a light user or a power user, Ray has a recommendation. His recommendation does not include non-stop, always-on defragmenting.
It's in line with our view as well. Put your defrag on autopilot, but maintain control. After all, it's your PC you want to keep healthy.
