No need to de-fragment. After identifying the driver, he need to delete partition (this will delete all data) and recreate with file system ext4(or ext3) and mount point as /. – Web-E Jan 31 '13 at 8:01
Some times it fails to identifying the drive without de-fragment. I have face an issue without defrag. – Sumit Munot Jan 31 '13 at 8:04
