Microsoft’s Windows XP was highly popular in the early 200s. There are many desktop and notebook computers which still rely on this version of the operating system. Microsoft has also made available various tools in order to help promote computer performance and maintain the computer. This includes check disk, system updates and the disk defragmentation utility.
According to the Windows XP help team, computers which are dependent on the Windows operating system are found to include a system utility which is commonly referred to as the Disk Defragmenter. They may even simply defrag. Microsoft even explains that when the user edits, deletes or moves files on his/her computer, it is possible that changes may get saved to a different location on the user’s hard drive instead of the original source. This results in fragmentation and requires the computer to search in various locations for the exact same file. Over a period of time, this is likely to decrease the performance of the computer. The disk defragmenter searches for and is able to reunite fragmented files so as to improve performance.
Users of Windows XP should look for this utility. This can be done by opening the “Start Menu.” Then choose “All Programs” and expand “System Tools.” The utility will be listed within this directory. The utility allows the user to select drives or partitions in order to perform defragmentation with Windows XP help.
If you happen to find that the Disk Defragmenter is not listed in the “System tools” of the Start menu, a user just has to delete this entry. This does not always imply that the tool is no longer on the Windows XP computer. The user may choose to access the defragmenter by right-clicking “My Computer,” followed by “Properties.” Click on the defragmenter in the “Tools” tab. The user may also choose “Run” from the Start Menu. Type “Compmgmt.msc” in order to run the Computer Management MMC.
