    Hardware Raid 1 and Windows Defragmentation

    I normally do windows defragmentation every weekend for my servers most are hardware raid 1 or 5, can I know is it actually beneficial to the server or does it harm the server by doing defragmentation on a weekly basis?

    weekly basis ? Personally think that is alot. The min period i'd do defrag is once a month and max can be a year or several.

    I've once had a RAID-1 break in the middle of defrag causing windows to crash. But for the sake of drive health keep defrag to minimum.
