 If it's NTFS, then you can use Diskeeper (2010 is the current version) to defrag networked drives; but if it's formatted with one of the linux filesystems, then sorry, but I don't know of any utility.

Ah yes.  Now I remember that that drive didn't store things in the usual windows way.  I had trouble getting it to work right and just converted it to a normal drive.

With what tool did you determine that it needs defragmentation?

Can't you just log into that drive and then defragment it?  I had that drive but never hooked it to a router just straight to my computer but I don't think I ever defragged it.
