Check If Hard Disk Requires Defragmentation With O&O SpeedCheck Share
PDF Print E-mail

Hard disk fragmentation is one of many reasons which causes a PC to slow down. Fragmentation means that a piece of data is stored into many pieces which are not close together. Defragmenting your hard drive can speed up a system, as it rearranges the file fragments in contiguous order. O&O SpeedCheck is a portable tool which simulates reading files from fragmented and defragmented sectors of hard disk. The application compares the time it takes for reading data from fragmented and defragmented sectors and shows the possible performance boost after defragmentation.

The application presents a simple wizard, which guides you through the process. Before you click Run to begin the test, close all the application running in background.

O&O SpeedCheck Start

First, O&O SpeedCheck will perform five runs of reading fragmented files followed by five runs of reading defragmented files. Then, it will calculate the time taken for both simulations.

O&O SpeedCheck Fragmented Time

Once done, it will calculate the time difference between both runs and display the possible increase in data access speed that can be achieved after defragmentation. You can decide if you need to defragment your hard disk or not based on these results.

O&O SpeedCheck Done

During testing, we found a interface specific glitch; the Run button goes blank once you start the program. We hope that the developer will fix this issue in next release. The application runs on Windows XP, Windows Vista and Windows 7.
