See, that bit contradicts...mad jew said:I wonder whether it would have any effect at all because the files on VPC are kept on an OSX-formatted hard drive after all. Since OSX does all its own de-fragmenting, you'd think VPC would automatically be clean as-is.
That bit.Remember, VPC is merely pretending to be an x86 system (Windows or otherwise.)
OK, fair enough. I figured it was like an app in that it was represented by one file in the finder but was actually a package of lots of little files. Either way, I can't be bothered defragging! I agree with you, it won't do anything noticeable.brap said:See, that bit contradicts...That bit.
The hard drive is one file. OS X will treat it as a single contiguous file yes, but inside the file is a working model, if you will, of a HD. This virtual HD will become fragmented as windows slaps data anywhere it wants, just like a real computer. OS X has no control over it.
My point is, who cares if it's fragmented. It's treacle slow anyway.
