Default Defrag app for ext sd card mp4 files Diskdigger pro?

Would be interesting to see an app that would or can defrag ext sd card mp4 files.
Reason I say is cause diskdigger pro recovery frags the larger recovered mp4 files that are recovered from being accidentally deleted.

Your not neccesarily understanding my thought...
I mean the app diskdigger pro Version
Can and will recover any deleted mp4 jpg or png file
When it restores the larger mp4 files it Tells you immediately before you save them to the new chosen directory that some of your mp4 /video files may be fragmented upon restore due to being larger files.
So if they restore to your external sd all fragmented ..might there be an app that can scan them and defrag them once more so they play fine as they once did .

You're not understanding the message correctly.

It's implying that the file you're recovering is large and was likely fragmented when it was deleted.

Since being deleted, the fragmented parts of the original may have been overwritten already which would make a successful recovery unlikely.

eg. A file is fragmented into three parts (1,2,3). File is deleted and location of fragment 2 is overwritten with other data - recovery only has parts 1 and 3 of the original file meaning recovery is not successful.

So in essence that would make the option for mp4 recovery useless moreless for that part of the apps supossed function. .. which is one reason necessary to upgrade and pay for the pro version..to enable mp4 recovery.... where the end result is that it cant do something it claims too.

Might there be any other sophisticated apps that can perform a mp4 recover better than one that Trys but fails. .. What about even if you mount the ext sd to a pc and run a windows program

You could try Recuva by Piriform. It's a Windows app, free, and every bit as good as any other data recovery software.

Good luck.
