DjLizard Posted October 8, 2006 Share Posted October 8, 2006 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 (This should be a sticky in the general "Technical" forum, not under any given sub-forum) Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
