Your computer can become slow as hell if it is not maintained properly. The average size of hard drive has become quite large in recent times, and this is one of the reasons for slow speed and decreased system performance. The main reason behind this is the fragmentation of files on the hard disk over a period of time. More space, less organized files. So today I will tell you how to increase your system performance with the help of two of the best freewares available around – CCleaner and Auslogics Disk Defrag.
Lets first download both these freewares:
Download the latest version of CCleaner here
Download Auslogics Disk Defrag here
After you have installed both the softwares, first run CCleaner. Clean up all the junk off your hard drive with it and also scan and clean up your registry.
Now exit all your programs and start Auslogics Disk Defrag. (There is an in-built defragmenting tool in Windows but it is too slow). Select the drive and start defragmenting.
Note: Defragmentation can take several hours depending upon the level of fragmentation and the number of files.
After you have defragmented all your partitions, you are sure to see a great difference in the performance and speed of your system.
I recommend you to defrag your hard drive at least once every month.
