[TechAssist] Re: Defrag question

I work on pc's alot and I have to say that Defragging is a very high cause
of many avoidable pc problems.  I've had pc's come in wiht totally lost Hd's
because windows statrs writing over itself when it moves the blocks around.
I don't defrag my drives, just do a clean install about once a year and I
run Windows2000pro on my machine and I seem to have very little
anomalous(can't spell though) activity.

Just my thoughts
