Does BitTorrent tend to cause a lot of fragmentation on the hard disk? The very nature of BitTorrent tends to distribute files according to fragments, and my defrag doesn't seem to really reduce fragmentation percentage. On the other hand, it's not really a problem since fragmentation really only affects the files that are fragmented, right? Another has to do with USB microdrives and any medium of data storage: is it possible for a USB microdrive or a CD to also become fragmented? Say, you transfer a fragmented file from hard drive to microdrive? And does this fragmentation then transfer from microdrive to new hard drive? == The other question I have relates to RAM and CPU speed. The amount of RAM on my computer is 854 MB, which is less than the 1 GB of ram specified by the packaging [I use a Gateway, Windows Vista]. What happened? The processor speed is also lower than stated on the package.
