    I ran a defrag on C where I have a couple of Paragon Drive 8.x PE Backup archives.

    When the defrag (Systems Mechanic) seemed to stick at the image file I cancelled the defrag.

    Can/should users defrag where backup images live?

    What defrag tool should I use/not use?

    Fire away, the more input the better

    i keep my images on a separate partition and i dont defrag them often though.

    when i do (did) defrag, O&O and UltimateDefrag seem to handle them ok.

    I also keep mine separate. Perfect Disk handles them but they take forever, and whats the point.
