Maybe you could do that via pm as I would be interested to know :-)

I think Im thinking of the hfs plus catalog file to allow for faster file / folder searching and still looking but not sure if os x ( hfs + ) writes data in a chronological order ( due to disk optimisation software being available such as Drive Genius )
I did find an article advising against disk optimisation( from what I understood although could be wrong ) as it would conflict with OS X 10.2 or laters routines that are in place to auto defrag etc as per below
Only way on windows to try and auto defrag / optimise is on windows 7 to schedule to do it daily or at set dates or times which isn't ideal as I prefer to defrag when
I have got no applications in use aside from the os and bacground services ie Anti-Virus etc
That ive also cleared temp files and the likes / disk cleanup etc
The better way on windows that ive found is an opensource util called ultra defrag which you can set to defrag / optimise on bootup which with rebooting quite often as I shut down at the end of each day I know it will do what it needs to do before I can use the pc so I personally prefer ultradefrag over the windows one
