That is a very good question and years ago when defragging was more common an easier question, but with the new OS's and better file systems, I have seen alot less fragmentation on alot of drives, and very rarely see that need to use it. I have also heard both ways on whether to defrag or not too. If a computer is running slow I first look for viruses, and malware, usually there is something and that does the trick, or check memory etc. In my actual opinion I have not seen actual proof either way on this question. But it can't hurt, until your drives start dying fast don't worry about it if its your way.
