    Question Description
    GDB CS609_Fall 2019

    Defragmentation for file organization is time consuming job and system looks halted to some extent during this process. Do you think that overall performance of the system will be degraded ultimately? Put your comments in 3 to 5 lines in either case (Yes/No).

    Defragmentation is the process of locating the noncontiguous fragments of data and rearranging the fragments and restoring them into fewer fragments or into the whole file.
    In terms of computer performance File fragmentation directly affects the access and write speed of that hard disk. All computers suffer from fragmentation. We use defragmentation to resolve this issue.Performance of system degraded during defragmentation but improve after it’s completion as compared to previous

    It is a special case of data fragmentation. File system fragmentation increases disk head movement or seek time (where it applies), which are known to hinder throughput. … The correction to existing fragmentation is to reorganize files and free space back into contiguous areas, a process called defragmentation.
