HOW TO MAINTAIN COMPUTER HARD DISK?

HARD DISK MAINTENANCE
To remove redundant and temporary files, recover hard disk space and speed up hard disk access, thenhard disk maintenance should be done at least once a month.
Disk Cleanup should be done first - Click My Computer - then right click on the C drive then clickProperties, then click Disk Cleanup - let it examine the C drive then it will calculate the amount of disk space it will recover, tick all the boxes to recover the maximum disk space and then Click OK and thenYes to perform these actions. If you have a D drive then repeat these steps on this drive too.
Next the C drive needs to be Defrag. This process converts fragmented files into continuous files and this speeds up disk access and makes the hard disk not work as hard. Click on Start - All Programs -Accessories - System Tools - Disk Defragmenter ? click to highlight the C drive and click Analyse (can skip this) - then click Defragment.
When this is completed repeat these steps for the D Drive if you have a D drive.
Disk Cleanup and Defrag can take a long time to complete, especially if these tasks have not been for a long time.
DO NOT STOP THESE PROCESSES, LET THE COMPUTER COMPLETE THESE TASKS.
Next time when you run Disk Cleanup and Defrag to won't take as long.
