On Random Access Memory, or ROM, there is no variation in access time no matter where the info is stored, nor any mechanical parts to over exercise getting from place to place.
So theory wise you shouldn't need to, or get any benefit from, defraging RAM or ROM.
If you want the same effect as defragging with less danger (IMHO) just copy all your BIS files (including hidden ones) to a folder on your desktop, erase all the BIS files and copy them back from the desktop. The OS will copy them back one at a time and contiguously. I think that is safer than letting some program play the slide the tile game with all the file fragments.
ow!! i didnt see it in that way...
okay, i guess ill just copy everything to my 1GB CF, and then copy them back...
PS: nice way of saying defragging as slide the tile game
