7% is not too bad, really.I have W-7. When I run the analyze portion of the disk defrag program, it says my fragmentation is 7%. But it does not advise whether or not I should defrag. Is there some rule of thumb?
That's cool man! Nowadays, "you gots to do what you gots to do!"Hi
I'm still cheap so I use Defraggler which is free.
It does make a difference when you defrag your hard drive.
Today I was rendering a 4,000 frame video from Poser (which is a 3D animation program) and it kept failing before it finished.
Which was a pain since it takes a long time to process 4,000 frames, or basically one file that is almost 5 gigabytes.
Finally I opened defraggler and ran Analyze.
There were only a few fragmented files on my D:\ drive and one of them was the Poser file I was writing.
I defragmented it and the next try it completed easily.
I've run into this before so I normally defragment before I start making the video files.
I don't mind doing the defrag manually since I pretty much know when I'm going to need it anyway.

It has two modes of defragmentation.
First you run a full defrag or the whole hard drive a process that takes a while.
After that you can choose just to defragment the fragmented files, this only takes a few minutes.
I defragment the files everyday, and after every installation of new software or even after creating new large files, like videos etc.
As I said this takes only a couple of minutes.
About once every 6 months I run the full defrag again.
Defraggler is from the same people who give up CCleaner and it works really well, I have it installed on every computer that I have anything to do with.
