Check Disk Utility & Defragment

This lesson covers the Check Disk Utility and Defragment functions.  We examine what these processes do, how they differ and are similar, why they are an essential part of good system maintenance and what exactly happens that makes them effective.

For example, what happens to files and folders located on the drive when you perform a check disk scan vs. scan & fix and what triggers the need to perform this system check?

You’ll also learn what happens the hard disk drive during the defrag process by diagramming and examining the hard drive components.
