Question defragmentation

Might be worth a sticky or an addition to the user manual....

(I hunted and could find no particular reference)

It is my understanding (and I have been suggesting accordingly on the Apple Discussion forums) that if you have very large files (larger than the 20 MB files that OS X defrags automatically), SD! will "defrag" your internal HD by simply smart updating the external bootable clone back to the internal HD.

Former Windows users ask questions about defragging all the time, and I wanted to be sure I am giving correct information.
