A search using file size as the criteria should help you to locate the
file. XP's Search is capable of doing this type of search.

So what? Your point is ...?

Why do you want to find it? What do you intend to do with it? Nothing wrong with fragmented files. How do you know this as anything I can think of that would tell you this also tells you the file name.

It may indeed grow so large that it consumes all of your disk space, but its
being fragmented has no bearing on this problem. As it is a tmp file
(temporary), what happens when you try to delete it?

Do a disk clean up regularly and if you find defragmenting manually a
problem, just set an automatic defragmenter that will do the job in the
background.
Nowadays with huge file sizes fragmentation is a bigger problem than
ever.
