Never.

Workstation and laptops all run on SSD, for which defragmentation is completely pointless and only reduces life expectancy of the SSD.

My storage server runs ZFS, for which defragmentation is a completely foreign concept. MacOS does not need it, neither does Linux with its ext3/4 filesystems.

In short: defragmentation is pretty much only needed for FAT and NTFS file systems using spindle drives (HDD). When I had these, I defragmented when the tool recommended doing so after analysis

SSDs should not be defragged - it's pointless - but the TRIM command is certainly handy for ensuring optimal performance.

To find out whether the TRIM command is enabled, enter the following in a command prompt:

fsutil behavior query disabledeletenotify

NTFS DisableDeleteNotify = 0 means that the TRIM feature is enabled.
NTFS DisableDeleteNotify = 1 means that it is disabled. To enable, use an elevated command prompt and enter

fsutil behavior set disabledeletenotify 0

make sure you are using proper defrag software.

If you have an SSD then never, because they don't work the same way,. In that case you will be 'trimming'. As for how frequently, it depends a bit on what you, what kind of files you have and also how slow your cpu and drive are. The slower the drive and CPU, and the less RAM you have, the more effect fragmentation has on performance. So the guidelines are just that - guidelines. try experimenting by defragging at different percentages and seeing if it makes a difference you can notice. I used ot degrag at 2% because with my set-up, it made a difference. Especially if you choose your defrag settings, put large files ta the end of the drive and so on. I also make the swap file a fixed size and put it in the centre of the disk (you may have to fiddle about a bit to achieve that). That way, the system is not constantly re-sizing the swap file, so you gain a little performance. I turn off indexing and I clean up junk before defragging (inclusing system junk like installation files for windows updates - try CCleaner, it is free and quite safe, unlike many, and use the windows tools clean-up tool. With faster machines, fragmentation isprobably not anb issue below something like 5-8%

Defragmenting is personal choice, I can defrag
5 or 6 times a day, if it needs it or not..
But by keeping your files compacted, it can reduce the time taken to defrag after downloading large updates..
