What does DEFRAG mean or stand for ?

DEFRAG is a computer process that is used in the hard drive of any laptop or PC.To understand it simply,think of the hard drive or storage unit as a big jigsaw puzzle and data that is saved onto it as the pieces of the puzzle.

When we save some data,the computer will randomly allocate any part of the puzzle and place the pieces onto it.As a result the data will be spread out all over the puzzle and not arranged in order systematically.This causes the hard disk to work slower and less efficiently.this is fragmentation.

Defragmentation is a program that Windows uses to rearrange these data blocks or pieces of the puzzle in order so that it can be accessed faster,and as a result the computer will run faster.
