Ubuntu – Before installing WUBI, should I defragment the disk


Is it might help? Is there something else that whould make it better?

Best Answer

Wubi is an Ubuntu installer for Windows that lets you install and uninstall Ubuntu from a Windows desktop. Wubi adds an entry to the Windows boot menu which allows you to run Linux. Ubuntu is installed within a file in the Windows file system (a loopmounted partition), this file is seen by Ubuntu as a real hard disk. That way the hard drive does not have to be repartitioned before the Ubuntu installation. The resulting Ubuntu installation is a "real" Linux system, not just a virtual machine. Wubi makes it easy for Linux newbies to play around with Ubuntu.

But if you have less than 5 GB space then you can defragment disk for more space optimization ..increase access speed by rearranging files stored on a disk to occupy contiguous storage locations

this is my personal opinion
