I bet you your 2nd drive will perform better if you defragged it. Give it a try!

that's not neccesary true, because that drive isn't an OS system or gaming drive, the files are put in order. now that order will change when you add and delete files, but not much.

it takes me less than 5 minutes to defrag a non os drive (it will almost move nothing).
