Do newer versions of Windows really still require defrags? Cripes...

Cool

Regular Maintenance is the key. Periodically conduct scans for viruses, spywares and the registry errors.

It is more a artifact of the file-system than the operating system itself.

de-fragmentation is usually set to a schedule at some crazy time to avoid interfering with usability, but if it is carried out regularly at a more sensible time, it should have little effect on usability.

it is possible to run windows from a differently formatted hard drive, but this requires a UEFI bios and a different drive structure from MBR, hence the requirement of UEFI.

anyway, the only way to notice any particular drop in performance is if the drive is seriously fragmented.

There are two ways for this: Eliminate unwanted files and programs (this includes viruses and malware), and buy additional RAMs and hard drives.

Thank you Linda. I'm gonna add something here.
To increase the computer's speed, one should regularly delete files in prefetch folder, temp folder. To find these folder you need to go to the run and then type "prefetch", "temp", "%temp%".
