Default 360 come with a defragmentation utility?

Just curious if it has one, or if you can use the one off of XP. I was mentioning on the PS3 how the PS3 lacks this at the moment, and might be painfull later on when you seriously start to delete/insert data onto the disk.

A few updates ago they made a patch which was "to optimize HD videos on a defragmentated hard drive". So I don't think any utilities to defrag, which would be nice, but they made the drive run fragmented. The old bandaid for a gunshot solution.

Yeah, there's no settings or anything it just works, my guess it they increased the buffer size so seek time due to fragmentation isn't noticeable. It works well too, I Dl'd some videos that were jumpy/skippy just prior to the update, and they play 100% smooth now. Same files.
