Windows Tools
« on: February 08, 2013, 03:18:40 PM »
Hi Shane in the System Tools in XP

With
1. Disc Cleanup which items are risky to keep ticked (deleted)?

2. How often should Disc Fragment be processed?

3. Compress Drive to Save Disc Space tick or untick?

Thanks in advance

Do them all but never do Compress Drive. It will do nothing but slow the machine down :wink:

The Bottom line is "Check your hardware first if it supports the task you try".

Dragging only helps, I am talking about compressing the drive, that slows it down horribly :wink:
