DjLizard.net mini wiki-page debut

Recommended Posts

https://wiki.lunarsoft.net/wiki/Myths

Please add any and all sites that support the truth.

I'm currently looking for some good anti-defrag pages to link to. Pages I want to link to about defrag will hopefully fall under these guidelines:

* Doesn't say defrag is "useless" in XP, or on NTFS, or with fast drives, because it isn't useless

* (Optional) : doesn't mention myths that don't exist, like "NTFS doesn't get fragmented at all"

* Benchmarking data about the performance gain of NTFS versus FAT32 in general

* Benchmarking data about the performance gain from defragmenting FAT32

* Some data about the lack of performance gain from defragmenting NTFS

* Hopefully a mention about how some fragmentation is necessary

* Something that mentions that defragmenting often isn't going to kill your drive faster, but fragmentation itself would if you weren't defragmenting

So yeah, defrag is kind of a mixed bag. That's why it's hard to find the truth :P

(This should be a sticky in the general "Technical" forum, not under any given sub-forum)
