Default Re: Defragging? How often should I do it?

I run virus/spyware scans every day, and, I defrag once a week, and then re-format once every 3/4 months.

Defragging upon a fresh install of Windows is important as well.

Defrag your hdd(s) every day. Your pc will last longer instead of doing it once a month. Read it in PC Mag.
