My laptop is 7 year old HP compaq with ubuntu 12.04. It was dual booting with windows partition. I was not using windows for the last 1 year and formatted and the windows drive and removed it.
All the disk partitions are NTFS except the ubuntu partions.
now my laptop is very slow, sometimes it hangs when using firefox, aptana editor etc.
I doubt the slow may be due to fragmented ntfs file sytem. If I convert all drive to ext4 will this improve the performance?
cleaning the laptop fan and dust make any change in performance ?
