    Fragmentation Horror Story

    Due to a perfect storm of errors I had to do a clean install of windows 10 yesterday, though I noticed after reinstalling everything my computer was acting rather sluggish. I ran auslogics DiskDefrag and found that my hard drive was 24% fragmented and it got me wondering.

    What's the worst case of hard drive fragmentation you've had to deal with?

    I haven't defragged a hard drive manually in many years. The automated runs by MS have proven more than sufficient with fast modern hard drives.

    I defrag once a month on my Caviar Blacks, both of my OS are on SSDs so no need there.

What's the story with Win10's WINSXS directory?
There's been a lot written about Win7's ever-expanding WINSXS subdirectory. In my Win7 install (which started out as a clean install) WINSXS is now 9.5GB in size. Granted, my system is several years old, but I know at some point the size or...
