    Buy DiskWarrior. Disk Utility and all those other utils don't work. And DiskWarrior also defrags too!

    i heard you dont need to defrag os x because it automatically defrags all files under 20mb, which make up most of your harddrive.

    Defragging your harddrive on a mac is not recommended

    Defragging in ANY OS is pointless. It doesn't actually help at all. Especially on OS X.

    Nothing. Organize your files yourself I guess. Do Disk Verify/Repair once in a while. Like if you mess with Windows and Boot Camp. And if there are more serious problems, DiskWarrior it.

    You don't need defragging at all. If you feel that your computer is booting slow, then its because you have too many startup programs. Too many things in the background. You could either find those or do a Fresh install.

    Okay, I usually run a MainMenu batch command every so often, repair files etc so I'll continue to do that and keep things organized. Thanks!
