Command for windows sililar defragmetnation


Hi Seniors,




I know that there is no need of of defragmentation in linux. But when my root partition was full last time i got a command that helped a kind of utility like defragmentation in windows..

Does anyone know command that works similar to defragment in winodws to free up some space?

Thanks in advance

You can resize a Linux partition using something like GParted (Bootable CD)

I am not aware of any defragmentation tools for Linux--Google might find something.
