I had the understanding that disk defragmentation in Windows XP reorganises your data so that files are contiguous along your hard drive. Every time I defragment my hard drive, I end up with blue coded contiguous files, but huge white gaps remain between the blue blocks.
Wouldn't this unnecessarily increase hard drive seek time and reduce disk performance? (since the read head has to move across that huge empty space to reach another file)
Oh and here is a screenshot showing the big white gap:
P.S. Is this because the stock Windows XP defragmenter is not very good, and there are better software out there? If so, what are some examples?
