Perhaps some flash drives with a large amount of space.

Seconded! There were like over 9000 errors when I ran tht program. Fixed my baby right up (to be fair, they were mostly orphan shortcuts)

Use the tool that's built into Windows: it's called Disk Defragmenter or Optomize (depending on version)

Linux or OSX you don't need to defragment.

I don't see why you wouldn't need to defrag on OSX or Linux or any OS

maybe because only windows is silly enough to require such measures... ;)

OSX with HFS Plus defragments files automatically when you open them and doesn't really fragment them to begin with. Linux does the same. Even if you did manage to fragment something in those it would resolve itself if you just let the OS to its own devices. The OS knows what it wants the file system to look like and even if you're going to defrag the drive it's best to let the OS do it.

It's really only a problem on Windows these days if you're really fucking with the HDD. For instance I was continuously writing 64GB files to my HDD the other day for several hours and even that didn't manage to fragment the drive. Although, if I had managed to fragment the drive Windows automatically checks and defragments the drives when the computer is idle :shrug:
