Just backup the contents, erase the flash drive and copy back the saved contents.
Carbon Copy Cloner or SuperDuper would work well or even use Disk Utility to create an image, erasae the flash drive and install the image back to the flash drive.
The more I think about it the more I wonder why it would be so drastically important to defrag the data on a flash drive.
Long Story Short I have a program on my USB drive and I need to defrag the drive so it will work in an old computer console, all videos on it use windows so need to see if there's a good/reliable tool for mac otherwise its the VirtualBox route.
