    How to add the option “defragment” in the context menu on the drive in Windows XP?

    In the context menu on the drive, I need to get the option “Defragment”. It is not present as the default. I need to get this, as I use it when I needed. I will be much thankful, if anyone solves the problem. Thank you in advance.

    Defragment in windows Xp reduces the time to read the files and increase the speed access of your process in your computer.
    By defragmentation of disk drive , it will improve the disk performance and maintain the disk functionality that use the FAT , FAT32 or NTFS file system.

    Defragment in windows XP

    --> Go to "start" and then "My computer"
    --> Right click on disk drive and click on "Properties"
    --> click on "tools" tab and then "defragment now"
    --> now click on "defragment"

    you can also defragment the disk by using microsoft management console(MMC) which is included in the microsoft xp.

    --> start MMC(Microsoft management console)
    --> click on "disk defragment"
    --> now select disk which you want to defragment
