Defrag question NB3

Is there a way to manually defrag the NB3? If not, does the box do it automatically like the 8300?

I wasn't aware the 8300 did an automatic defrag. I know there's a way to do one, though, through the front panel. My original hard drive was a 160GB Maxtor and there was never an issue with performance. The drive died a few weeks ago after almost 10 years of flawless performance and I replaced it with a 320GB Western Digital IDE drive.

By automatic I meant the power off for 5 minutes while on ROD or music channel. I was just thinking that the audio hiccups I'm getting might be caused by the HDD itself.

I've never heard of that one before. I think defragging drives is very overrated and unnecessary. With current file systems, such as NTFS for Windows, for example, it's completely a waste of time. I suspect the Seagate drives in the NB 3 would be the same.
