    Wow! Defragmenting does help!

    Advertisement



    i defragmented my microSD card a couple days ago and wow... it does help. at first i thought it may just be the placebo effect, but i really do notice a lot less lag when opening media from the card, especially when fast forwarding a video.

    from now on, i plan to defrag my card every time i make major data changes (add/remove large amounts of data -- enough to cause fragmentation)

    i would imagine go to my computer
    right click your removable disk (that the card shows up as)
    go to properties
    click the tools tab
    defrag

    connect the bb to your computer. make sure the bb device manager is running and that mass storage is on. your microSD card should be mapped as a removable drive. defrag it as you would your hard drives

    it will not delete any of the data. defragmenting simply organizes the data on the card for quicker access. it is exactly the same as defragmenting your hard drives (which you should do regularly, if you don't already)

    it depends on how much data you have on it. i had 1.3GB out of 2GB total, and it took me quite a while. if you have a memory card reader that handles SD cards, using that will be much faster than via the blackberry. i don't have one, but i'm patient.... most of the time.
