Fully Automatic Defragmentation
A defragmentation is a way to rearrange the data on a hard drive to increase performance. If an element, for example a file on the hard drive, is erased, an empty space will occur there. This empty space is filled again when a new element is saved on the hard drive. If the space isn't big enough, the new element is broken up into fragments. These will then be placed into different places on the hard drive to fill empty spaces.
After some time the PC will need longer to read files, because, first of all, it has to assemble all fragments. Therefore it is very important to do a defragmentation regularly, in order to to maintain the hard drive's performance. Among the common methods Ashampoo HDD Control 2 uses the so-called "proactive" defragmentation, which makes use of your work breaks to analyze the level of disk fragmentation and do a fully automatic defragmentation, if necessary.
