Ideally the disk should be completely empty/defragmented before recording a show.

That lets the QU write sequentially – hopefully to a region without any reallocated sectors (which need the head to seek across to the “spare” area, and then back to carry on).

To seek the drive needs to move the write head sideways, then wait for the disc to do (on average) a half rotation, which even at 5k rpm is a long time in computer time…
