Me too, a single db file, if it is defragmented, will be cached in the HDD
internal cache. If you use multiple files then there are no guarantees as
to where those files will be physically on the disk, even when it is
defragmented. If the data is contiguous and cached on the disk then all
this jumping about from one part to the other would be quicker. I think.
