Fragmentation on ext filesystems

Just had to increase the hard limit for a number of fragments per file on ext filesystem in our ReclaiMe data recovery software, from 64K to 256K. On NTFS, it is not uncommon to see 20,000 or so fragments per file, but ext just beats the hell out of NTFS as far as fragmentation is concerned.
