The other night when I plugged my GC into my laptop at home (running vista) it prompted me the the file system needed to be checked. Not unusual, happens when the usb device isn't ejected properly.

Does anyone know if it is ok to let my system run the scan disk on it? I assume it's formatted fat32 so it should know how to, but wasn't sure if it was safe (or supported).

What about defrag? I know that on other devices (including my laptop) defragging is a great improvement in disk IO.
