Windows 7 has a built in disk defragment feature. It's scheduled to run at 1 am in the morning automatically. You can change the settings if you like. Just do a search for the feature in Win 7.

Use the built in feature, it is better and MUCH safer than anything you can install. Windows 7 cannot allow another program that kind of low level access and still have reasonable system security. Stay with the original one.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.

Use the Windows defragment tool. It is enough for Windows 7. It is not that much beneficial to defragment every single file on the computer. I remember once there were even boot-time defragmenters on the market. Maybe there still are.

If you want real speed, do not expect too much from defragmenters. They do not do miracles. Better go for an SSD and get completely rid of defragmenters.

I tried to defrag with the normal defrag and it fragmented the bigger files. I can use the command defrag but it takes time to start. I can do a command file...

Is it necessary to defrag USB and SD cards?

Defragging attempts to reduce the seek times. Seek times happen because the physical head has to move over the physical drive platter to the new location. Solid state devices like USB sticks and SD cards have neither heads nor platters, and do not have significant seek times, so there's nothing to reduce. In fact, defragging those drives will actually cause harm to them.

I thought you could write to a USB or a SD card as many time you can write to a normal harddrive.

But the System Volume information get mutch fragmented. I use the Smart defrag 2 to fix the problem. Can I use a other software for that or do it another way. I dont want to disable system restore points.

I have installed ubuntu 11.10 under Windows 7 and it is a 20 GB file. If it get fragmented will it slow down ubuntu? Because the file system ubuntu use spreading the files all over the harddrive so it minimize the fragments risk.

Nope. SD / USB uses a cheaper technology, and it reduces the number of writes available. A high quality, properly maintained SSD HDD will still probably outlive a traditional HDD, though.

How long time shall I wait to defrag next time.
Unless you're creating and deleting arbitrary sized files every hour of every day, the default schedule of once a month is more than sufficient. If your usage is anything even remotely resembling normal PC usage, once or twice a year would be sufficient.

the System Volume information get mutch fragmented
Unless you're constantly restoring your system state, you shouldn't care about the performance of constantly running system restore. If you are constantly running system restore, you probably have bigger concerns than an additional 300 ms (as in 3/10 of a second) seek.

If it get fragmented will it slow down ubuntu?
You're running an OS inside of another OS. Drive access times are the least of your performance concerns.

Well then why do you care how long it theoretically takes, and why are you taking steps for marginal performance gains? That'd be like you, right now, taking time out of your day, to decide which order you'd put on your clothing while in Antarctica. Or deciding, right now, which brand of beans you're going to stock in your bomb shelter that you might build one day, maybe.

What I'm getting at is you're doing an awful lot of work for what you admit is no gain.

Ok. So System volume information is not used at boot time?
If it does, then I would do well performance losses?
