Scheduled Disk Defrag to improve performance

Disk Defrag also known as Disk Defragmentation is a process of organizing the contents of the disk in a way that all portions of the file(s) are stored in a contiguous manner. Disk Defragmentation helps reduce data access time and also consolidates the free space on the disk. Desktop Central's Disk Defragmenter tool aids the defragmentation process.
