Im running windows 2000 server on a dell power edge 2500 running as a file server. it contains 2 drives, the first dirve contains the OS, and the second drive is used for users data storage. The storage drive is fragmented really bad but I have never dealt with SCSI drives before. Can I safely defrag this drive? Lets say if my system had a Raid 5 configuration could i defrag with out hurting anything

Yup, you can defrag any disk the operating system can see, write to and have full administrative control over.

The RAID level or other disck configuration is irrelevant.

You will be able to defrag this one and while there are almost NEVER any issues with defragging drives, it is not a bad idea to take a good backup first.
