I have 15% fragmentation on a 1TB hard drive, should I defragment?

Assuming you're using a modern Windows OS just leave it on its default schedule and don't worry about it.

I'll usually defragment at 5 percent or more.

The system does this itself when you leave it alone for a while, unless you turn maintenance off. In which case, yeah, you should do it already.
