XP PRO and yes they do recommend 15% but for me, with 64k clusters, it is simply not an issue. There are lots of guys recording 3+ OTA HD streams simultaneously on their Sage/BTV rigs. This results in tens of thousands of fragments for each recording since they are not contiguous. Some guys schedule a defrag every night and others never do one. IMO, defrags are no longer necessary. With 64 K clusters it is simply not an issue (for me).
Maybe one of the experts with big storage arrays will jump in and back me up or shoot me down!!!!
