I had an exam today in my software class (uses this
book) and one of the questions were:
in which order should you perform optimization in Windows...
b: disk cleanup/ccleaner
I chose, B - C - A
and apparently the answer was B - A - C
(according to the book (poor reading retention on my part) and also the instructor told us a story of how long it took chkdsk to finish once because the drive was so fragmented).
I submit, why would you chance defrag writing to a bad sector? also, I remember in XP if the drive was fragmented bad enough you were forced to run chkdsk anyhow. So, what does everyone else think?
