The free defragmentation utilities listed on this page purport to defragment your
hard disk, that is, they move the various fragments of your file so that they are
in one contiguous chunk. A defragmented hard disk has at least a couple of advantages
over a badly fragmented one - your system may operate faster, since the operating
system does not have to move the drive head of the drive all over the hard disk to
load the different portions of a file, and it is generally slightly easier to recover
an accidentally deleted file, since the various segments of the file are placed in
Note that this page does not cover commercial disk defragmentation tools like Diskeeper
and O&O Defrag Professional. In addition, if you have a system optimization tool
like the commercial Tune-Up Utilities, you also already have a defrag utility on
your system. (Tune-Up is a sort of Swiss-army knife of system optimization and maintenance
software. It does practically everything.)
Be aware also that if you use Windows, you already have a defragmentation tool installed;
Windows comes with a somewhat slow but otherwise functional defragmentation utility.
