    Just wondering is there a way to defragment internal storage and/or SD card on Android with a system tool (not third party app)? I have a Lenovo A536 running 4.4.2. So can I defragment the storages. Thanks in advance

    I would think that only helps with physical hard disks to reorganise or rewrite space.

    Madd is right. You don't need to defragment your android device. Take a look at this thread, some interesting readings included there.

    Aside from the fact that there's no seektime for the head in solid state storage, Linux doesn't fragment the way Windows does. (Some operating systems inherently don't fragment, some inherently do, some don't but have to be managed [compacted] manually.)
