Once a week I run either Disk Clean-up (found in the Systems Tools folder on Windows PCs/Laptops) or the CCleaner application (free to download) to clear down space on the hard drive of my computer. It mainly erases temporary files created by applications throughout the week. I'll also run one of them before I watch the stream of a live football match*.
*Please note that the Premier League legal team would not like it, if I were to list the web addesses of some of these websites that stream live games on this forum. As i understsand it, it's not illegal to use them, but it might be to be seen to be actively promoting them.
I was told by a Systems Programmer that I trust that it is no longer necessary to run Disk Defragmentation on Windows computers/laptops which have Windows XP or later operating systems installed. He explained that there was a change in the methods in which data was stored on the disk, which meant it was no longer necessary to free up large areas of contiguous free space.
Right, does anyone have any other maintenance programs that they would recommend? What about our friends with Apple Mac computers?
