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?

The file system you use is sort of important. FAT32 only lets you store files up to 4GBs in size. Windows now uses NTFS (which is a much better file system IMO) Can't find your answer ? Ask !
