    Hey gang. Is it necessary to defrag a Treo 650? I didn't see anything about it in my thick book from Verizon, but I figure it should be important since I've loaded and deleted several programs so far.

    If I should be, can anyone recommend a program?

    Thanks!

    In fact defragmentation could be a bad thing because flash can only be written to a limited number of times.

    I agree that defrag is not necessary, however, eventually, you may run into 3rd party software corruption. To cure that, you do this (a clean install):

    Defragmentation is a good thing on hard disks because the read-write head has to be physically moved around to access the pieces of the file scattered around the disk. This can add a significant amount of time when you're doing a lot of disk accesses. With solid state memory, however, it takes no more extra time to access memory in one location versus another location so defragmentation is pointless.

    Thanks folks!
