Defrag for Pocket PC coming to you soon
Techworld who had a word with a Microsoft representative reports that fragmentation could also become an issue for handheld computers:
If most files are written sequentially what happens when earlier files are deleted and then a new files written? There will be 'holes' throughout the file system which new files will be spread across, thus fragmenting them... Microsoft says its measures will 'reduce any kind of fragmentation.' It doesn't say it will get rid of it. So, over time, the file system in a mobile device's hard drive will become fragmented and, by extension, its performance in finding and assembling files from its storage system will deteriorate.
Which leaves me to wonder: How many Pocket PCs out there are equipped with a hard drive?

Many third party utilities already allow defragging of memory cards (I use Storagetools which has this feature). I must admit though, I've never bothered to use it, preferring to back the contents of the card up to a ahrd drive and reformat the card instead.
I wonder what others do? Anyone??

I wouldn't bother defragging Flash-memory, in fact I've heard scary stories (e.g. losing data) from people defragging their flash memory with a Pocket PC tool like Pocket Mechanic.
