    I just transfered about 40GB worth of music to my MBP from another computer and I was wondering if I need to do any maintenance whatsoever ever to it after transferring a heavy load of files. Do I need to defragment my hard drive, anything of that nature? Any other maintenance programs that are a must that i should use or download as well? Thank you. :D

    PS: I'm new to Mac and I love it. :p

    OS X defrags on the fly, you don't need to ever worry about that.

    however you might download onyx and run the maintenance scripts every once and awhile.

    I had a few problems with Oynx a couple months ago. Since I bought the unibody MBP, I run Time Machine, backup business documents and Disk Utility on a weekly basis and have had no issues.

    Defragmenting an Apple computer makes things worse not better, Windows only needs to defragment because its so rubbish. Basically OS X looks after itself. Windows = Newborn Baby, OS X = Adult.

    acutally i prefer Redhat Linux and Windows XP to OS X for various reasons, so dont jump to silly conclusions, but what i wrote is the truth.
