A little clarification would be helpful
I had a little trouble following all that, but I "think" you were backing off from some of the accusations in your first message. If so, I appreciate it and want to say "thanks!". But in both your messages, it sounds to me like you're suggesting my computing habits may be the source/cause of any problems I'm having with Speed Disk. i.e.
FROM YOUR 1st MESSAGE: "...what needs to be done is to establish that indeed it is your computing habits that are the cause for your need to defragment..."
FROM YOUR 2nd MESSAGE: "Indeed this provides only that neither the post nor this responce is terribly out of line but the place and purpose of our computing habits maybe."
As I said, I was having a little trouble following your message, so perhaps I misunderstood, but if that is what you're suggesting, perhaps you could clarify what you mean.
The majority of my computing (probably 95-98%), consists of the following:
* Office applications (mainly Word and Excel)
* A music writing app (like Word, but for writing sheet music)
* Storing (and occasional editing) of digital photos
* Capturing analog video, then editing and rendering the digitized video to DVD
The remaing 2-5% of my computing consists of web use. My main need for running defrag software comes from the fact that problem free video work requires large areas of contiguous free space. As a result, most of the the defrags I run are on a hard drives dedicated to video storage and processing. But occasionally, the drive used for the OS, application programs, office documents, and temporary digital photo storage, also gets a little fragmented -- so I run a defrag on that. Finally, on occassion, I run scan disk or an equivalent app to check for drive errors.
The bottom line is that I run the apps noted above and defrag as needed. If you see an issue with those computing habits, please share.
