really, it took 3 days to repair my system drive. by that i mean repairing the volume structure (as seen above) and defragging. i eliminated 20 gigs of crud from the drive and now it’s rockin’ it all un fragged. if my system drive was a child you could call it neglected and abused. i mean, it’s part of The Robot so i didn’t think about it much, but my computer is under a desk across from my bed. and my computer is my webserver, this webserver, the server you access this very site from. when you visit my website, you come out the side of my bedroom wall in a cat5 cable, around my bed, past my turntables and mixer, and under my desk right beside where my feet are now. and then back out again. so, when this system drive is as fragmented as it was, you can bet it started to freak me out when it started making odd noises in the middle of the night from heavy web traffic last fall. i said to myself “i have to do something. it would be unwise for me not to.” so finally, i did. not only did i clean up my hard drive, i totally cleaned up my living space while the defrag program did its thing. this is the slowest defrag i have ever seen, but i really don’t care. this is my Ã¼ber secret blog and everyone that should know about it figured out what i was doing while the server was being worked on.
so, when was the last time you defragged your hard drive? you may be making it sick… you may be on the path to destruction!
