I follow a very nice Facebook Page called: Mac OS X Tiger PPC and they post useful material that I felt obliged to share with you here.

Defragmentation!? I didn’t know that we had to do that with Mac, but if by any chance you feel like your Mac needs a defrag to make it run faster, you can check out iDefrag. This application will defragment your Hard Drive and optimize/improve the performance of your Mac. As I mentioned before, the blog Mac PowerPC is always looking for free/open sources of applications/programs/apps, but sometimes we can not be limited to just these, as running a PowerPC becomes a challenge and often the applications will cost extra money. If you want to have your system running to its full potential, you need to get the right software , to get the most out of the Mac PowerPCs. I recommend that everyone takes their time and download the demo version in order to make their own decision!
