|Geek entry of the day: I just watched the most crazy defragmentation of a hard-drive I've ever seen. Drive C of my laptop is strictly system - applications, games, and data files all go on other drives. Since I don't update drivers very often, there is no excuse for the drive being fragmented, and yet the upper two thirds of the drive seemingly had tiny tiny files scattered liberally throughout. Defrag thought it would be clever to move all the tiny tiny files to the first bit of the disk, presumably to maximise future fragmentation. Anyway, having defragmented,
PartitionMagic is now gleefully shuffling all my partitions down a step or three, after I took away half of the system-stuff partition and half of the games partition, to become, with any luck, a sheeny shiny riproaring brand spanking new super-optimised over-adjectived OpenBSD.
