    hahaha. No not on this thing, it'd take a lifetime to attempt doing a defrag..... It'll never happen. Ive tried it a few times with no luck... nah i'd be quicker doing a full factory re-set on this thing ...

    Thanks anyway.

    ETA : Its stopped now btw, like it started randomly and it stopped randomly. hasnt happened since. :s
