comment When I copied photos from my camera to my desktop, they have fragmented equally throughout the remainder of my hard drive. Why?
I checked Auslogics Defrag again today and the blocks are now arranged in a 'normal' fashion (i.e. in one large clump with the free space after). Not sure what caused this to happen. Maybe the scheduled Windows defrag software worked its magic in the background!

I can click each block and it will list out the files that are currently occupying that block. Yes, the free space was in a large block before. I've never seen this behaviour before; this isn't the first time I've copied files from my camera to my Desktop. I've been using that HDD for almost 9 months and new files were always created in the next available block up until now.

The pattern that you can see at the bottom of the blocks was actually the same before I ran the defragmenter (sorry, I should have taken a 'before' screenshot too). The Windows defragmenter is scheduled for Wednesday 1am, and I copied those photos on a Saturday, so it can't have been that which has caused this issue. So it must be that the photos were fragmented as I copied them from my camera to my computer? But why would this happen?

@UltraDEVV Disk Defrag is an alternative defragmentation software made by Auslogics.
