Defragmentation ?? (SOLVED)

Postby Petlyn on Sat Nov 14, 2009 5:51 am

Hi thanks for 'looking in'.

Does Mint or Linux in general fragment the hard drive? I cannot see any reference to this in the forum.

If yes is defrag required if so what tool? Obviously if you have a windows on the same hard drive you will have the tool at hand.

Thanks for the interest.

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

You don't need a defragmentation tool in Mint.

Thanks for the BRIEF answer, however this does not say anything, presumably Linux does not fragment the HD but WHY is this so ??

Thanks

NO MORE REPLIES ON THIS SUBJECT PLEASE

I have just noticed in the TOPICS list DEFRAGGING. This explanation goes very much into the subject for which I am grateful.

I would not have issued this topic again if the guy had used DEFRAG or DEFRAGMENTATION as the subject header as my search failed to find the subject.

Thanks to the writer EXCELLENT explanation.
