> is it worth it to use a 3rd party defrag like Perfect Disk
ONLY if your boot drive isn't an SSD, outside of that it's only good for a slight boost in load times for apps/games stored on a non-ssd
Outside of that, I wouldn't even bother.
But if you're still using a mechanical drive to boot from, it can make quite a noticeable difference.
I've come to find the only defrag package that truly makes a difference is one that can do a boot time defrag for files that can't be defragged while the system is running, which the windows inboard defrag cannot do.
It also helps to use CCleaner to get rid of all the trash BEFORE you defrag.
>>52504318 OP, if your hard drive is fragmented due to having a filesystem like NTFS on an HDD, defrag every once in a good while. The speed gains are negligible, but you'll get a good deal of "missing" storage back.
