Defragmentation is simply the method of taking “pieces” of files scattered at different places of the hard drive and putting them together.

A hard drive is considered “fragmented” if there are pieces of files scattered all over the place, and Windows needs to take extra time to locate all of those pieces to read or write them to system memory.
