I like my caviar green 1TB but it defrags very very slow. It changes its RPM based on load and I think when it defrags it does not spin up for some reason. It literally has taken over 48 hours to defrag both times I have defragged it. It was 15% fragmented last time with about 400 GB on it so it's not like it was horribly fragmented or full.

It's not that big of an issue because the drive is still useable while it defrags and my puter would be on anyways. I just find it odd...

Other than that it seems fast and essentially silent. File transfers to and from it are very decent speed. It's only defragging that makes it seem slow.

It is a 1TB Caviar Green WD10EARS in case you are wondering.

What program are you using to defrag? Maybe try a different one?
