I really don't know too much about the fragmentation or anything on a hard drive, so I'll get down to the basics.

Recently my games FPS's have been dropping to unbearable levels for a few seconds.

-all FPS are FRAPS generated-
in GRID I get about 65-70 FPS (Medium settings, 800 x 600)
in Sims 3, I usually have the same amount as GRID, and it's maxed out, ultra high, and 1024x768)
GTA IV gets between 19-25 FPS (low/medium, 800x600)

GRID and TS3 drop to between 5 and 15 FPS, and GTA IV goes from ~25 to between 3 and 5 FPS. It's getting to the point where I can't even enjoy my games anymore (I've adapted to the low FPS with GTA IV)

So I just checked my Disk Defragmenter with Windows, and I got this:



And the View Report got this:

Quote:
Volume (C

Volume size = 298 GB
Cluster size = 512 bytes
Used space = 148 GB
Free space = 150 GB
Percent free space = 50 %

Volume fragmentation
Total fragmentation = 24 %
File fragmentation = 48 %
Free space fragmentation = 0 %

File fragmentation
Total files = 117,276
Average file size = 1 MB
Total fragmented files = 10,123
Total excess fragments = 202,387
Average fragments per file = 2.72

Pagefile fragmentation
Pagefile size = 2.00 GB
Total fragments = 1

Folder fragmentation
Total folders = 10,041
Fragmented folders = 622
Excess folder fragments = 5,025

Master File Table (MFT) fragmentation
Total MFT size = 136 MB
MFT record count = 128,328
Percent MFT in use = 91 %
Total MFT fragments = 3
I figured this would be the most appropriate place to post. Any help is GREATLY appreciated

Doubtfully. But why do you not try first? It shouldn't take more than a couple of hours, so while you're at it, go to the local club and ask a girl out

I'll give it a go, and it took over 14 hours last time I defragged many months ago...

and sadly there are no clubs or anything around here (just bars, and I'm not allowed in them (being 16 ftl)
