    no spinning disks = no need for a defrag.

    if you're just needing to speed it up a bit, you could download a little app thru Preware called 'jstop'. It can help to kill processes to do a speed boost...

    Seriously bad idea to defrag flash RAM. Shortens life of the memory.

    Though some of the responses hint at the reason for the answer of "no", I think the question warrants a more in-depth answer.

    Physical hard drives occasionally need to be defragmented. All data on the storage media is divided into small chunks. Those chuncks have a tag at the end that tells the OS where to find the next small chunk of data.

    On a physical hard drive, you can speed performance by defragging, which moves all of the fragments of the file so they are sequential, and the OS doesn't need to "wait" while the read/write head repositions itself and the physical hard drive spins to the proper position so the next fragment can be read.

    This isn't needed when the "hard drive" is memory. It doesn't matter where the next fragment is located, since there are no physical moving parts to wait for. The only "slowdown" is the virtually unnoticable slowdown caused by resistance in the computer chip. It's negligible.

    Obviously you've never heard of the SSD's every manufacturer under the sun is trying to pump out....

    And to overstate the UBER obvious....'cause someone will use it as a factual 'excuse' for the need not to defragment a solid state memory device.......

    "it is highly probably that the original poster of this topic was merely asking if there is a 'patch' or 'method' to perform the something similar to the 'TRIM' command on the solid state memory in the Pre, much like in SSD's"

    Caveat:
    1. The original poster may be just a crazy person and assume that the Pre has a little disk drive in it that spins..... lol.
    2. There is no evidence, that I am aware of, that indicates the Pre needs its SS memory 'defragmented'.
    3. I'm sure someone will only read a piece of this post and take it out of full context in order to reply in some haphazard fashion....

    Cheers

    The Pre does not have a micro drive in it that spins?


    AWW nothing like a bit of sarcasm...

    This post proves that you are undereducated in the fields of both applied mathematics, and quantum mechanics. How DARE you pretend to know my intentions when the mere attempt to explain my actions alters the outcome in ways so unexplainable that i wouldn't even have to know what i'm talking about to......where am i again?
