    That depends on what programs you need to run. Different programs, different kinds of applications, have different requirements. Tom

    I know this is probably not the answer you are looking for, but I agree with Tom. The answer is "it depends..." Some programs may need a lot of space to store temporary files or data. It might exist a limit imposed by a specific defragmentation utility, but that doesn't necessarily mean that that is the limit for acceptable performance. For "optimal" performance, maybe you would need to have the disk as empty as possible, and as defragmented as possible. I don't think it is correct to recommend a percentage of the total disk space. If you have really small disk, you would need to have a high percentage free for everything to work well, but if you have a big disk, a smaller percentage would be Ok.
