I do it. It takes about 10 minutes. You should do it regularly anyway!

I do it, say, once every 3 weeks. This computer seems to be a little less prone to misplacing it's files. Only takes me around 5 or 6 minutes.

Do it more regularly. It will be quicker.

I will from now on... maybe once a fortnight. If I can be bothered! There should be a facility where you can schedule a defrag and it does it automatically. I should e-mail microsoft and tell them of my idea!
