Re: How do I defrag my computer Pavillion g7

Hi

 

Here are the steps in how you can defrag your unit.

 

  1.  Start button Picture of the Start button, clicking All Programs, clicking Accessories, clicking System Tools, and then clicking Disk Defragmenter.Administrator permission required If you are prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type the password or provide confirmation.


  2. Click Defragment Now.

Disk Defragmenter might take from several minutes to a few hours to finish, depending on the size and degree of fragmentation of your hard disk. You can still use your computer during the defragmentation process.

 

Let us know how it goes!

Hi,

 

If you're running Windows 7, it does a pretty good job of defragging in the background.

 

If you would like an application with a visual display of the defragging process, you could try the free application on the link below.

Remember to de-select the System, Recovery and HP_TOOLS partitions as these should not be defragged.

 

Regards,
