Hi

General question about linux file systems.

Is it a general practice to have to 'defragment' these like Windows ?.

If it is can someone suggest what application I might look at to do this.

Thanks in advance

John

In general one does not use such a tool, however for some file systems such a tool do exist.

See e.g http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Defragmentation#Defragmentation_issues
