How to Defrag Free space in Mac

When a file is saved in Mac hard disk, we suppose that it is saved in continuous memory block on the Mac disk. But, it doesn't always happen and not all the files on the drive are stored in continuous block. Many files on the disk splitted into several chunks and scattered. When we open those files , processor takes long time to pick up each fragments and show it. So, Mac users can easily get rid of these problems by following some Mac maintenance activities.

Scattered data

This is a popular myth among Mac users that “Macs don't need defrag process do they?”
If the Mac disk is large and there is lot of free space available then you will hardly notice slow performance. Mac OS X performs a certain amount of defragmentation called adaptive hot file clustering by itself. It tracks file usage and those files that are accessed the most (called hot files) are moved to a special area of the disk. Files in this area can be accessed faster as compare to those files which are accessed rarely.

But, this techniques do not work properly in case of large files. So, you need to use any third party tool for this work. Stellar Drive Defrag tool helps Mac user to defrag data and keep it in separate contiguous memory and free space separately.
