    I download all my tv shows on my laptop and whenever i finish watching a few i move it to my MacPro. I have around 90G worth of movies/tv shows on my laptop, once i finish watching for example the daily show i would delete it but i would keep other tv shows.

    Do i need to defrag my laptop and if so how and how often? I am told that i have to do so only if i transfer lots of large files often.

    Thanks in advanced.

    assuming your in mac os x, you don't need to defrag, mac automatically does it as you go.

    edit: there are some third party apps that defrag, I don't know if they actually do anything but theres one call iDefrag.

    GREAT!

    I received my first mac on Christmas and typically I don't defrag my computer but I feel the need to take of the Mac.... but I guess I don't have to worry about defragging. :D
