This will probably sound dumb but oh well, here goes. Has anyone ever known of defragmenting a hard drive causing any problems whatsoever? I have had a bit of an irrational fear about doing this so I did a quick google on it hoping to find that it could not cause any problems but instead I found that someone had posted somewhere that after they defragmented their drive their puter started taking longer to bootup. I did not read the details since I trust the opinions of the people here more than I do some random post so thought I would just ask about it here. I know that not defragmenting it can eventually cause problems, but wonder what possible problems I could encounter by defragmenting it. Yes, I like to hope for the best, but prepare for the worst.
Thanks for any info anyone can share about this
Ooops, one more thing, if the files that need to be defragmented are part of a System Restore Point, will those Restore Points still work?
