Is there any way to make a defrag on my xbox?
I have moved around a lot of files in my xbox via FTP (copyed, deleted, moved)
I wonder if you guys have a program or something who can do that or is it necessery at all?

To my knowledge there is no program to defragment the FATX partitions the Xbox uses. So short of backing up the entire drive via FTP, formatting it and restoring it there's not too much you can do to defragment it. It's really not a huge deal though...the the E drive is usually the only one written to enough to get badly fragmented anyway so there's not much reason to defragment anything.

Due to the nature of the FATX filesystem, the Xbox HD does not become fragmented, thus making it pointless to create a defrag app.

Wanna provide some facts to support you claim?


One of the Avalaunch developers was working on a defrag application but it was never released & the developer is MIA.

Can anyone provide any more infomation on this topic?
