Fragmentation of system memory is a not-very-widely discussed phenomenon that affects the performance of a computer. However, its negative effects are often overstated, and some of the "cures" offered for this condition can be counterproductive.

Memory defragmentation programs claim to improve the performance of Windows 2000 by forcing the system to swap out all unused pages of memory to disk, and to force all free memory to be contiguous. This way, rather than have this done on demand when launching a program that requires more memory (which can slow down the launching of the program), the garbage collection can be done preemptively or on a scheduled basis. One such defragmentation program is MemTurbo II.
