PortableApps, lag and my new Cruzer USB device

A couple of days ago, I had occasion to upgrade my older Cruzer USB 2 GB thumbdrive to a new 4 GB thumbdrive of the same brand.

I use my Portable Applications within a Truecrypt encrypted partition that lives on the drive, and performance for these apps dropped like a stone.

Turns out that they’d gotten deeply fragmented within the Truecrypt partition. Defragging made everything all better.
