I think they are covering their rear ends as the installation of FSX results
in a very fragmented drive. A defrag is considered essential as the first
thing after installing the sim.

Subject: [jhb_airlines] Defrag needs

Sod's Law dictates that when I go out my return is met with a blue card
from Manx Post, saying they delivered a package, just 5 minutes ago. I
can usually then collect from the sorting office; four hours later.

Naturally, four hours later and we have the first cold spell of the
winter. It's also raining. Add to that the fact that the road onto their
site has been dug up and is a quagmire, through which I have to drive my
newly cleaned car!!!

None of which matters a toss, when I find the parcel is the three vol
package of Horizon's photoscenery.

Which brings me to the question. The installation instructions advise a
disk defrag before installation. The HD onto which it will be aimed is a
brand new, virgin, SATA 160 Gb, only formatted yesterday. Do I need to
defrag it when it's never been used?

That could delay my seeing how the scenery looks.....
