Fragmented files

  Akinbiyi 09:01 13 Mar 03

I run XP/Office 2002. My Outlook.pst file is 50MB, even after archiving unwanted items. It gets very fragmented into 70-80 semgments and slows down greatly, so every so often I copy it to a new file, which is more or less contiguous, but of course within a week, it has fragmented again and slowed down.

Is there any way to stop the file fragmenting like this? I have Norton Utilities Speed Disk, but don't fully understand the options for file placement.
