Disk Defragment for RAID?

Can someone recommend a program to defrag RAID config drives?

I don't think Windows Disk Defragmenter is capable.

Thanks!

One of my clients uses PerfectDisk on a server with a large RAID array. Seems to work OK.

Why do you say the Windows Disk Defrag isn't capable. I know it is slow, but you could let it run over night. Or does it just not work?

The windows version just seems to hang and not do anything.

Interesting.

The other product is Diskeeper. Both of these companies have less expensive, "home" versions. Might want to check the specs to make sure that the version you get does large drives.

Windows defragmenter will not work when the drive has a paging file.
I have a raid setup that defragments fine when I temporarily get rid of the paging file.
