OK, so I dual-boot Windows XP SP3 and Ubuntu 12.04, is it OK to defragment my HDD? I don't want to risk corrupting either OS, cause they're both on the same HDD.

File systems do not get fragmented beyond the boundaries of their partitions, letting windows defragment its self is perfectly safe and encouraged.
