Activity 2: Disk Defragment

Notes: Disk Defragmenter consolidates fragmented files and folders on your computer's hard

disk so that each occupies a single, contiguous space on the volume. As a result, your system can gain access to your files and folders and save new ones more efficiently. By consolidating your files and folders, Disk Defragmenter also consolidates the volume's free space, making it less likely that new files will be fragmented. Disk Defragmenter is a system utility for analyzing local volumes and locating and consolidating fragmented files and folders.
