    It corrects the errors in most file systems in which they place the data in whatever physical spot on the hard disk that is available, and organizes like data together.

    For example. | = Data 1 * = Data 2 - = Blank space

    Now our HD before Defrag...

    |***--***|-**-|-|****||---

    After defrag

    ||||||***********---------

    Makes the computer more efficent and info is accessed faster.

    Don't count on a big performance increase though.

    Not really, your right. Not anymore anyway. However, when your low on HD space and you consider Window's shitty page file design, you can tell.

    well it does help.. it reduces the access times of a file and significantly helps transfer rates. Look at your harddrive specs or run a test between sequencial reads and writes vs/ random reads and writes.
