Need to defrag NTFS

i have an external drive that I use with my system. It is an NTFS drive. knowing that NTFS needs to be defragged on a regular basis. Need help if I can do it on Manjaro or is this only possible with a Windows OS.

Since Linux doesn’t support NTFS as well as Windows (since this support is due to retro-engineering) you will prefer doing that from Windows.

While you can read and write ntfs on Linux - special filesystem maintenance is only available on Windows.
