Yeah, because I really feel like backing up all my data to reformat in the place of defragmentating my windows drive.. Then go through all the BS involved in installing Window$...digging up all my sound and video drivers, installing antivirus software, updating XP.....etc. These are reasons I use Linux. Windows exists soley for my games.

I defragged my powerbook once this year, I think it made a difference, and I've rebuilt my HD twice in the past month.

I never see much of an improvement whenever I do it.  I must not be pushing my laptop to its limits.

When my computer slows down, I just reformat the hard drive. The only thing I really have on the computer is my music which is on my iPod. Once every 6 months is pretty sufficient.

Today I'm doing a big room cleaning/computer cleaning day... Gonna take a nap for a while while my c:\ defrags, then get started on this pit of a room I'm in...

Defrag really is a great piece of kit.
