20MB. what?
Authored by: tokai on Sep 30, '10 02:26:29PM

You can buy the 3rd-party application iDefrag for a few bucks. It does its job well; at least for me.

The real problem with fragmentation isn't so much fragmented files as the files being cluttered all over the disk; causing lots of seeking back and forth on the drive. For that reason I regularly defragment and optimize my drive; else the hard disk in my Mac mini gets too noisy and annoying (you can hear it in a silent room when it seeks extremely on a frequent base).
