I used to defrag my hard drive all the time, until I found out that it
corrupted most of my data. Every time it moved data to the bad spot on
my hard drive, it would corrupt that data. Of course, I didn't know I

If you do choose to defrag, I strongly suggest you use software that
verifies all written data, or you could be punching holes in your files.
On a side note, even today, when I copy files I care about between 2

every 30 to 40 gig of data copied, gets something corrupted. :(
