Sorry to break this to you, but there is no such thing as a non-fragmenting file system. There are ways to mitigate
fragmentation (NTFS supports several of these), but those only work on small files
. There is also a limitation of actual space on the HDD. Fragmentation is not something that is curable due to the way bits are stored on the HDD they will eventually fragment when files are added, deleted, changed, etc.
The EXT* file system fragments just as NTFS does.
