    I haven't had a chance to check this, but does anyone know offhand if defragmenting an NTFS is faster or slower than defrgamenting a FAT32 system, if you say had exactly the same situation on both file systems - for test sake say you have a 5GB NTFS partition and a 5GB FAT32 partition, both had exactly 2.5GB files on each partition. Does anyone know which would be faster?

    A FAT defrag is faster than an ntfs defrag.
