Defrag?

Created: 22 Jun 2013 • Updated: 22 Jun 2013 | 5 comments

Since I defrag my drives every month before it creates a new base, is there any reason to defag the destination drive? Seems redundant.

Windows selects all drives when setting defrag to 'Auto' by default. Deselect that destination drive?

 

Thank you

Not in my opinion.

The fragmentation of drives of drives does not depend on each other.  When you defrag your source drive, it does not mean that the destination drive is not fragmented.

As long as you are using it for SSR backups only, defrag on that drive should not be necessary. The SSR image files are contiguous.

2 answers say 'no'.

1 answer say's 'yes'.

Solveed? Only if a 2:1 ratio of answers are considered proof to the solution. If the answer would have satisfied my query, I would have marked it as solved. :)
