Disk Drive As Dispersed Cattle

a: Fragmented disk drive ~
b: a dispersed herd of cattle

What: It all about time and space. 100 cattle scattered over 10 acres take time to round up. 100 cattle on 1 acre take much less time and effort. Likewise with fragmented memory on a disk drive. If a file is written to numerous parts of a disk and not a single location, the drive has to jump around to find all the bits and pieces, which takes time and energy.
