Windows 7: Need Help With Optimization. Need free Optimization programme.

Need Help With Optimization. Need free Optimization programme.

I recently factory reset my pc. I have it cleaned it up. C: D: are clear of unwanted stuff.
Especially D: I found out it had 3 old backups on I couldnt see.

I dont want to have to buy avast optimizer. it works wonderfully on my phone and tablet.
I know it would be awesome. But dont have the money.

Can you please reccomend a good free optimizer tool?
If one exists.

It really needs to be optimized and bad files removed.
Is there a way to optimize it without a programme?

I think it causes problems.
My system reserved is 68% fragmented.
System reserved has never defragmented at all or properly.

I cant backup onto D:
D: is mostly free. So is C:
But it says its space unavailable.
The backups wont complete onto D:

I will have to backup onto a disc. if I can.

if its not a optimizer thing. Please can you tell me what could be wrong?

It also slows down for no reason on things.
it may be dust and overheating. or something else.

It's not internet reasons.

It needs taking to a it doctor and new heatsinks done and a time problem fixed.
A chip or software.

Also. What type of disc do you use for backups? Is it possible to use a rewritable that you reuse over and over?

Please can you help me.

Backup should be done on a external drive. (hard drive or ssd)
Their are no magic optimize programs. They are snake oil.

Here is a tutorial by Brink that gives lots of good ideas. Most systems don't need all of them done. Take a read. Pick and choose as you please which to do.

Thank you. :)

I have a a flashdrive. But I dont want the backup to overwrite my files on it.

Will it overwrite the files? Its 32gb. Will it go in a seperate place to my files?

I'll read the link you put.

A flash thumb drive is a poor choice for backups.

As per my post @2
(hard drive or ssd)
To your question.
If you partition your flash drive, you should be able to install backup's on the new partition without bothering your old data.
