    How to defrag an external fuseblk storage disk

    I've got a 1 TB external drive for storage with the file structure showing as fuseblk. I was wondering how to defrag the drive, or if I could format it to ext(x) and eliminate any need for defragging?

    Short version, fuseblk means it's NTFS. Honestly unless an NTFS partition get very full they don't fragment much either.

    To my knowledge there is no NTFS defragger for Linux, I understand one is being ported currently and is in a testing phase.
