Read the title. I should not have optimized my hard drive (getting rid of fragments) using TechTools V3.0.4 I think that just slowed down my computer - excuse me, my beautifully crafted Mac. I used the Optimize Hard drive function on it. It just yeah, it just slowed this computer down. I'm considering doing a reformat, but will my Adobe Products stay installed or do I have to reinstall them? I have them on a separate partitions. That isn't the main focus of this thread, its just how Optimizing slowed down my computer.
