So what my friend told me is incorrect:
"When windows is installed, it spreads the files out on the disc in
an optimal fashion. Defragging oftenl clumps the files
together...not in an optimal way."

I'm afraid so.


I've just now finished installing XP and Norton Internet Securty. I've got all the updates. Should i defrag now ?
Or after installing everything else (Photoshop, MS Office, etc, etc)?
Or should I defrag in about a week after I've used the stuff a bit?
