Defragmenting after backup
May 12th, 2006 at 4:13am
 
Hi
I have backed up  my C drive onto a separate HDD using Ghost 10. It seems I cannot now defrag D adequately - the backup file remains fragmenteed.
Is this normal, and does it matter?

Cyril, the central reason to defragment is to achieve performance gains.  Since the Ghost 10 .V2I files are (hopefully!) used only rarely, I would not be concerned about their fragmentation state.  Personally, I do not defragment my image (restore point) files.

If you are using th ebuilt-n windoze defragger, you won;t get gpod results.

You'll do better with a real defrag program such as Perfect Disk.
