Good question, I don't recall any if the UNIX based systems having defragmentation utilities. I'm assuming all OSes would need them.Originally posted by xrhajj
I want to know is there anyway to implement disk defragmentation via terminal or cmd=+s?
I know fsck -y just fixes the files, is there any other commands that I can use?

there have been a few other threads on defragmentation in osx. there are some command line defragers for unix oses but i'm not sure if they work with the hfs+ filesystem. right now, drive10 and diskwarrior seem to be the only way to defrag hfs+ volumes reliably, but it would be really nice to have a free defragger, but keep in mind that the mac filesystem is more resistant to fragmentation than the windows one. my roomat has to defrag about once every 2-3 months, where as i have to defrag... well... i dont really have to defrag.
edit: there's another thread on this topic here
I had a separate drive setup for swap under 10.1.5 but it doesn't seem to work under 10.2 - I got it to work once and the next time it booted we were back to square 1Originally posted by evildead
I even have dedicated swap partition on a second drive so swap does not fragment my system drive.
