As a computer user, if you hope the computer can work longer, it is necessary to maintain the computer correctly. Since there are many ways to protect the computer, I would like to share some of my experiences in computer maintenance.

As long as you live in this computer world, you must have heard of disk defragmentation. It is really a very useful method to maintain your computer. It can help you get rid of those disturbing junks in the disk and free up space to support computer running more smoothly and efficiently.

You can find junks and temporary files in certain folders in the disks but cannot view the fragments in the disk. In other word, even you can remove the junks manually by deleting them directly, you cannot get rid of any piece of disk fragment like that. That is why Microsoft creates a defragmenting program to help you solve this problem. Unfortunately, such program seems to be designed for those who have plenty of time and energy. So, in order to optimize defragmentation performance, it is wise for you to use other tools like “Advanced Defrag”.

It is known to all that many system programs are put in the C disk. If there are a mass of fragments in it, it is probably to hinder system startup speed. In order to speed up the starting speed, you should reduce the fragments in the C systematic disk as many as possible. In certain Windows systems, it may create a temporary swap folder named “WIN386.SWP” in the “C: /WINDOWS” directory.

Such folder is used to work as virtual memory by applying its hard disk space. That is to say, even you do nothing as long as you start up computer, the temporary swap folder is still there to occupy disk space. Working as virtual memory, it will read and write to hard disk frequently and lead to a pile of hard disk fragments.
