So, What do you guys do for general Maintenance?
Every week I,
Every week I,
- Clean the Registry
- Virus Scan
- Disk Cleanup
Well Facebook get's a lot of use!One a week? Dang! What do you do with your machine and where do you browse man?
Anyways, I ran Malwarebytes a few weeks ago on both my main rig and laptop, the first time in a year maybe.
I defrag occasionally when I need to which isn't very often.
Well, I'm running Linux, so let's see. Viruses just aren't an issue as long as you're sensible. XFS never needs defragging. CCleaner is pretty unnecessary even if it did exist for Linux. And there's no registry to get corrupted or stuffed full of crap. As for disk cleanup, I haven't got anything leaving random rubbish all over the place so why do I need it?Don't you find it gets slow?
Not really, and definitely not that often. Only thing defragging every week is going to do is heavily thrash your disk lots, potentially reducing its life significantly. Only thing that I'd even think about doing once a week is running a virus scan. I'd personally drop the rest back to once a month absolute minimum (6 months for defragging.) Disk cleanup is more for reclaiming disk space than for performance reasons as well, so unless you're running out of disk space weekly...Do you think? I thought it was good practice.
