When you save a file on a hard drive, it is distributed among free segments on the hard drive. The more you save down and delete files, the more the files will be split up. This results in longer loading times because the read head on the hard drive is forced to search longer for all parts of the file. A disk defragmenter puts all parts of the file one after the other, which speeds up file handling considerably. MyDefrag does that and much more in an easy and fast way.
