Defragging and different file systems Tags: Hard Drives Hardware File System Systems Storage Last response: August 18, 2010 1:31 AM in Storage Share demonzeos August 18, 2010 1:22:36 AM Just a few curious questions I have. How important is defragging in this age of technology? Does the importance matter on the type of file system used or the hardware? In the future will defragging become unneeded?
