Please be more specific - what do you mean when you say "VNC stops
Disk fragmentation does not affect the performance of an application unless
it needs to access files on the disk often, or the machine is heavily loaded
and is making heavy use of the swapfile. With most applications, VNC
included, you might notice a slight delay in loading but once they are
running disk fragmentation will not have any noticable affect on their

First, I should be specific and I say I am using Windows XP for the client
Basically, the VNC stops responding in the presence of moderate levels of
disk fragmentation. This behavior seems to
be visible on both the server side and the client side.
Completion of a disk defragmentation seems to reduce/eliminate the problem
and VNC starts working again.
Applications always slow down as a disk fragments, but VNC seems to hit a
threshold when it stop all together.
