Hi there - My system is encrypted, using the System Encryption feature available in TrueCrypt - What I need to know, is it safe for me to defrag? as I have had conflicting responses as to whether its ok to go ahead and defrag a system which is encrypted?


Thanks

From TrueCrypt:

Q: Can I use tools like chkdsk, Disk Defragmenter, etc. on the contents of a mounted TrueCrypt volume?

A: Yes, TrueCrypt volumes behave like real physical disk devices, so it is possible to use any filesystem checking/repairing/defragmenting tools on the contents of a mounted TrueCrypt volume.
