As far as your original question though, I agree with Brink here. Once a month is fine unless you do an awful lot of downloading and/or deleting etc. The more a regular HDD works i.e. spins, the more wear and tear naturally. For most normal users weekly is overkill. IMHO of course.

Hey! Just noticed your hometown! I worked Coney Island one summer,the old Coney lol. Was a "badge of honor" at one time for old school carnies to put in a summer there. Ate so many Nathans...........

Hi Everyone,
Thank you all for your help I have most of my files already stored in my dropbox folder so that I don't overwhelm my hard drive with adding/deleting pictures that I have uploaded from my cellphone. I will defrag my system every month instead.


Greetings Indianacarnie,
I enjoyed eating the Nathan's Hog Dogs from Coney Island,
but that is all I remember I was a little girl back than.
