How a Hard Drive Works A video of a Hard Drive in Action
This Drive is working like crazy because it needs to be defragged..When the files are stacked closely together; the Drive's arm movement travels less. The files on this Drive are scattered, so when the arm swings back and forth seeking data and writing data it takes much longer...(seek access time)..

Keep your drive defragged to avoid this type of behavior..

yep, that will improve performance in general, gaming and sometime avoid games to crash.

True, although SSDs are becoming more popular and they have nice storage capacities (around 512 GB, if you can afford it!). Not to mention speed.
The next 10 years might the the last ones HDDs got left /rolleyes.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':rolleyes:' />

Unlikely: The game is loaded from the hard drive into RAM; there is nothing the game needs so quickly from the HDD, once the game is loaded, that a millisecond difference is going to cause a crash.

Not that unlikely. Power efficiency is getting to be a bigger and bigger deal. Performance isn't the only part of the picture, you know.
