Guys whats the recommendation for the timing of an initial defrag of our Media Agent drives? I just just got Diskeeper on it it and its shown that our LUNs are fragmented to hell (usual for de-duped data apparently), so i need to do an initial defrag on them, afterwhich diskeeper should keep them tidy. But when to do this initial defrag?
1) Im thinking of defragging during the day only, for obvious reasons, when backups are not running.
2) do i need to stop the MA services when defragging these?
3) is it safe to defrag the disk which has the DDB on it? or only defrag the disks which have backup data on?
