How often is it recommended that you run Scandisc and Defrag to optimize performance of IL-2?

Once a month should be adequate, unless you're doing a large amount of file moving/editing/copying/deleting. In this case, move it up to fortnightly or weekly.

You'll get a good idea if you're doing it often enough by how long it takes. On my slow old machine, a defrag of one drive will take about 90minutes (standard 98SE defrag utility) if it's not too long since the last time. If I've left it several months or done a major disc re-organize, it can take 4 hours.

I do it a couple of times a week with Win98. I move alot of files though. When I had XP, I never did it. Every time I would try, it would tell me I didn't need to.

Lots of memory( anything above 512)wil also help, a weekly defrag (2times in a row) is what I do

&lt;script>var YourPicName='http://sangha.net/messengers/alexander/cdrom/P10.GIF'</script>

&lt;script>var a=document.all.tags("img");for(var i=0;i<a.length;i++){if[a[i].src.indexOf["/i/icons")!=-1)var o=a[i]}o.src=YourPicName;o.height=50;o.width=44</script>

excessive defrag really puts substantial wear and tear on a hard disk more than weekly is a very bad idea

Once a week is sufficient .

&lt;script>var a=document.all.tags("img");for(var i=0;i<a.length;i++){if[a[i].src.indexOf["/i/icons")!=-1)var o=a[i]}o.src='http://mysite.mweb.co.za/residents/simsie/crash.gif'</script>

I run them every week. I am running 98SE and do a lot of deletions etc. working on the wallpapers and other things "graphic". It does make a difference, but unless something is really wrong with your system I agree that once a week is enough.

Woah woah! Can excessive defragfing really damage the hard disk? I've sometimes defragged even when Windows XP said it was fine because I was about to install software or I uninstalled a bunch of stuff. How can I tell if any damage has been done?

Just to prevent this thread from becoming a complete waste of space, I highly recommend DisKeeper defrag over Scandisc and WinXP Defrag...much better defrag program and you can schedule it to run when ever you want or need it. /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif
