Hey guys, I've tried to get some best practices (/programs) for defragging my Mac, or more specifically, my El Cap partition (shared with a Bootcamp partition hosting Windows 7 and of course the usual recovery partition for OS X). I've tried Drive Genius 3 once, but it caused problems. Well that or another event that occurred at the same time maybe. To be frank, I don't really remember it too well, because right around that time my Mac failed anyways and I had to get my GPU replaced through Apple. Maybe that's what I remember. Anyhow, I'd love to hear what everyone considers to be a safe approach to defragging a Mac. I know OS X does a better job at this than Windows, but I really think it's time to do this. Glassed Silver:mac PS: defragging can be either live or offline (booted from a stick or DVD) - guess offline is better as it can move files a live defrag can't. PPS: no, I don't have an SSD, otherwise I wouldn't ask. Thank you for everyone who tried to stop me from unnecessarily wearing out a drive though. The least it's done is prevent a googler from doing this!
