How to run computer maintenance?

Following is step-by-step instructions on “Disk Clean-Up” and “Defragmenting”. By performing some simple maintenance it does a couple of things. It will keep your computer running smooth and clean and it will lengthen the service life of your hard drive.

2. Right-click the disk in which you want to free up space, and then click Properties.
3. In the General tab, click the Disk Cleanup button.

5. Click Yes to the proceed with this action, and then click OK.

When your computer writes data into a file on your hard drive, it's not always able to place all of the data together. A section of a file might be written near the beginning of the disc, the remainder of that file could be written near the end. This causes programs to run slowly, as the computer spends time retrieving the file fragments from all over the disk.

Defragmenting your disk volume arranges files reducing the time taken to read a file. This procedure is similar in all Windows versions.

1. Click Start, and then click My Computer.
2. Right-click the local disk volume that you want to defragment, and then click Properties.
3. On the Tools tab, click Defragment Now.
4. Click Defragment.

As always, if you need help with your computer, or have a question about your computer, please call.
