I have read a lot of stuff about how with OSX 10.5 and 10.6 HD fragmentation is not really an issue because of the design of the OS and the HFS+ file system... well be that as it may I also read the a great way to defrag is to write to a Bootable BU, format the original and then restore the Bootable clone.

Is this or is this not a goot idea?

Your thoughts please.

There's a white paper about this on the SuperDuper! page, in the sidebar...

Do Macs running OS 10.5/10.6 need defragging?

That all depends on who you ask. They automatically defrag files in general, but that doesn't mean those files are in an optimal location.
