  1. I know right, I was kinda disappointed to see they didn't notice that ;c
  2. Yes, I said so multiple times, about 3-4 times to be exact :P
  3. So recently, my laptop has been running extremely slow. I told a friend about my issue and he pointed me to this site and suggested I download the Smart Defrag program. Though he advised me that defragging in general runs a 1% risk every time to completely break your harddrive (to the point where you now need a new one, need to reinstall windows, etc.). I was still unsure so I showed him my disk drives through my Device Manager, I currently have a "TOSHIBA" MQ02ABD100H", he informed me that this is essentially a hybrid and is basically half a normal SSD and half a normal HDD so he wasn't sure what to do in that case because the files would still be fragmented, but the SSD part may be damaged. Though he mentioned if I did use the program it'd be a good guess that this 1% risk would raise itself up to %4. (He said that the damage would have the possibility of happening when it starts cleaning out my windows files for any tmp jumk. As well as the result of the damage is that it would create is towards how it reads and writes, so if I try to open an image if it breaks it can open it with artifacts or may simply throw a memory error at me) My question is, is there any danger in general with defragging as my friend said? As well as, due to me having a hybrid as me mentioned, am I in any greater danger and should I just not even defrag in the first place?
