What is Defragmentation?

Defragmentation is a process by which fragmented files that are stored on a disk are rearranged to occupy contiguous storage locations allowing for both space and performance optimization. Disk fragmentation may cause crashes, slowdowns, freeze-ups, and even total system failures. You can use the defragmentation operations to analyze the disk, and defragment it to consolidate free space.
