FSX: Defrag After Install is NOT Optional!

It’s been discussed elsewhere, but I have to reiterate here: for all you lucky desktop flyers installing FSX, please remember to defragment the hard drive where you installed it immediately after install. In testing, a bunch of ‘simmers have reported badly fragmented HD’s following their FSX installs, and enhanced performance within the sim once a defrag was done. I know it’s tempting to just jump into a plane and go for a flight after install, but trust me — this is one bit of housekeeping you definitely want to do.

  1. yea but how to defrag it?

  2. By using a defrag tool, of course. Two I’ve tried are O&O Defrag and Ultimate Defrag. Both work great.
