One a day? Once a week? Once a month? Once a year? Never?

About once a month. I usually run spyware and malware scans first.

Once or twice a month with Smartdefragger. It has an auto-defrag feature like diskeeper but I simply don't like them tapping the HDs as often as they do../shrug

the windows desktop has been up for 5 years, haven't defraged. No spyware/adware, no viruses..nadda. Runs as good as windows can run.

Everyday... :whistling:



J/K, I actually never defragment. I know I'm a bad bad end user.

Vista Ultimate has me scheduled for 1am every morning.

What OS are you using? Vista and Win 7 will do it automatically on a set schedule. Daily by default I believe.

Check out O&O Defrag: http://www.oo-software.com/home/en/products/oodefrag/index.html

I run a virus and spyware scan every morning. I defrag once a month.

I seriously doubt that, especially on a 5 year old PC!

You should try a defrag one night and see if you notice a difference. It certainly can't hurt.

I don't really care for the built-in Windows defrag too, however. I recommend JKdefrag, O&O Free edition, or IObit smart defrag (the only freeware defrag app I've found that can defrag on the fly).

C'mon -- take the Pepsi challenge!

About once a year on my personal.

Bout three times the first week, then the schedule runs weekly... Both on Vista and Win7RC.

XP you can make a batch file and add it to the 'scheduler'...

Just depends on what you want! I got tired of doing the maintenance manually... (grin)

Every 90 days. Anything less is a waste of time for you and the computer. Go answer the Defrag question when doing it and it will tell you if you have used files and stuff enough to need to do it....

I have mine set to run every night around 2am. I try and run my spyware programs at least once every couple of weeks. I will run them oftener if I am surfing the web much.
