I have not seen any for Nitros-9.
But in OS-9 Level 2. There was one called DEFRAG.AR in the Australian OS-9 usergroup Public domain stuff. I'm pretty certain it was a defrag program.
I just checked my hard drive (in use for 10 months); very few files with more than one segment. OS9Boot and the CMDS directory have 3 segments.
So I dug out some floppies from 15 years ago. Files with more segments only show up on nearly full disks that had been used a lot. On the one where I built the level 2 cgfx library the last file written, cgfx.l is in 5 segments. ... Of course, most of the files on the disk are small enough to fit in one sector so fragmentation can't be a problem.
Anybody have a disk where files are REALLY fragmented?
