Re: DEFRAG for ext2fs

It is out-of-date and perhaps somewhat dangerous to your filesystem.
You also don't need it. ext2fs tends to keep your disk blocks in order.
It's not nearly as bad as the FAT filesystem in this respect.

The best way to defragement any filesystem is to back it up, make a fresh
filesystem, and restore it.
