Enhancing Performance with Disk Defragmentation
Desktop and Laptop security improvements
There are numerous well documented improvements to system performance and reliability when an automated disk defragmentation program is used. Applications load faster, the computer boots to a useable state in less time, backup requires less time to transfer data to an archival storage devices, and many more.
This paper pursues a narrowed focus, specifically addressing the tangible benefit that disk defragmentation provides to desktop and laptop client security. Anti-malware security software has become ubiquitous commodity. Whether used on servers, desktops or laptops, the scanning of files on demand or as a scheduled process, is a significant part of the overall business security equation. This particular research paper will present the results of testing performed on typical desktop/laptop environments.
