Defragging another drive?


Recommended Posts

Hi Detailer. Thanks for your reply. Yes you're right. It's a flash drive that plugs into my USB port and SD isn't seeing it. Any suggestions on getting SD to see it? Norton's defrag program along with Win XPs defrag program let me defrag removable drives. Don't know why SD doesn't.

Hi ccummins,


There's really no need to defrag a flash drive. Since there's no read/write head moving around, there's no lag once a file becomes fragmented. In fact, since flash memory has a limit to the number of times it can be written to, you may be reducing the life of your drive by defragging it.


If you want to defrag it, simply copy the entire content of the flash to your HDD (keeping the same folder structure), erase the flash drive, then copy the content back. The files will be written contiguously in the copy process.
