i dont find it worth my time to use the default windows defrag. I use system mechanic pro and use their optimized defrag option, and there is a considerable difference between that and the standard defrag. Its taken me up to 2 days to defrag, but its worth it.

Thanks for all the responses. It looks like a lot of people are defragging their hard drives on a regular basis using a third party defrag program.

It really kinda depends on how much you're fragging up your HD. If you're installing and uninstalling alot of programs or creating/deleting a lot of files then you should do it often.

If you've changed very little on your system in the past month, then it's hardly necessary.
