Really?  Then does the program automatically copy the information to the
right places?  My 12 GByte drive has about 7 Gbytes of storage on it, of
which I plan to remove 3-4 Gbytes.  Then I will resize it to about 4
Gbytes.  Therefore, if I don't defragment the drive, there will be
information all over it.

Thanks for the information though.
