soulshine,

Instead of reinventing the wheel with an explanation here. I will give you a link to an already well written explanation of your questions. Defragmenter explanation link here. I would be remiss if I didn't add Bleeping Computers own well written tutorial on "The Importance of Disk Defragmentation". Hope this answers your questions.

Be (Defrag) Safe

edit: :thumbsup: to add our own tutorial on defrag.

Just my 2 cents:

It can't hurt to defragment, unless you count time loss. Depending on drive size, it can take a lot of time. I know some versions of Windows will inform you if defragmenting is not needed.

To speed things up, it is good to disable any applications and such that will interrupt the scan or it will start over! You may want to reboot in Safe Mode to do it.

Those articles probably say something similar, but better. :thumbsup:
