The FreeBSD file systems don't have a problem with fragmentation. If you run fsck and see the word fragments, it means something other than in the MS world. But, if you insist on doing it, your best bet would be to use dump(8) to make a complete backup of the filesystem. Then re-newfs(8) it and then restore(8) the backup in to it. ////jerry > > Cheers, > > Mazen > _______________________________________________ [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
