How often should I defragment my storage server? I do it once a year, it that often enough?

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

You should defrag it if it’s heavily fragmented. If the fragmentation level is low I wouldn’t bother defragging it. If the fragmentation level is high then it probably needs it.

============
Defragmentation of the hard disk drive should be done at least once every two months. This is to maintain the efficiency of the files stored within the hard disk drive for faster read and write of data.
