How much fragmentation before I should defragment?

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.
You get it started, and I'll run you over. That's the best plan I can think of.

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.
