  8. 8. Rearrange Your Data <ul><li>What does that mean? </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Your computer often breaks files side by side to increase the speed of access and retrieval.

Fragmented files cause slower performance. This is because your computer must now search for all of the file's parts. In other words, your computer knows where all the pieces are, but putting them back together, and in the correct order when you need them, can slow your computer down. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>-Source: </li></ul></ul>
