Here is a tricky one. We are currently using five 300GB removable Hard drive (SATA harddrives in removable hard drive rack) as a solution to perform our backup via NT backup.
Each disk backups up a week's worth of daily schedule NT backup and rotated at the beginning of the week
When a new disk is inserted to perform the week's backup, it is formatted first even before the first backup takes place.
After the first backup takes place, I analysis the disk using disk defragmenter and it would always indicate ' you should
defragment this volume’ this is so even if I defrag and analysis the disk again tomorrow.
Any suggestion why this is so?
I am thinking about including a batch file to run daily disk defrag after the daily backup completes
but I wonder if this would put more strain on the disk -- won't they wear out faster if i defrag everynight?
Welcome any suggestion.
