Defragmenting the hard drive on line or off line?

I read the information you provided on the importance of defragmenting the hard drives in a Windows database environment. Can this be done on line or must the database be taken off line prior to running the defragment operation?
I have done it both ways. However, make sure your RAID and disk manufacturer support it for Oracle before attempting it.
