Will defragging a disk array on a Windows 2000 Server create any problems?
The Disk Defragmenter in Windows 2000 operates at a software level; it is not aware of any physical RAID arrays that are operating below it. Most modern disk arrays will handle the disk defragmenter process without complaint, but to be on the safe side you should check with your manufacturer to see if there is a manufacturer-specific utility that you should be using instead.
