Do I need to defragment an external USB fat32 drive?
I have an external USB drive which I share between my Linux laptop and my Windows work PC. I know that for Linux filesystems there's generally no need to defragment, but does this also hold true for Windows filesystems when used under Linux? Or does the Linux implementation of fat32 also fragment the data? If so, is there a tool I can use to defragment a fat32 partition?
I have searched for info on this, but all I seem to be able to find are threads about needing to defragment Linux paritions (ext2/3, reiserfs etc.), but nothing on fat32.
Any thoughts welcome.
