Editors' Review

+

There are plenty of downloadable defrag utilities to choose from, but it's hard to beat the ease of use and helpful extras in IOBit's Smart Defrag.

With this utility you can quickly analyze your hard drive to check the level of defragmentation before committing to a scan. The interface shows you different colored blocks representing fragmented files, frequently used files, and more, with a helpful key to show what each colored block represents.

When you're ready to pull the trigger, you can choose from a straight defragmentation (fastest), or have Smart Defrag perform either a fast or "deep" optimization after defragmentation. Our test machine has a rather full hard drive, so even using the fast optimization took close to 40 minutes. Depending on your hard drive and level of defragmentation, your mileage may vary.

In addition to the solid defragmentation tools, you can have Smart Defrag automatically defrag the files you use the most without significantly slowing down your system. Even while performing a full defragmention and optimization run, the program barely uses as much as 25MB of RAM, and with just the auto-defrag running continually, it uses about half that amount.

Smart Defrag offers a few extras, including a scheduler so you can set it up to only defrag during downtime on your computer. You can set it to run scans on bootup or even have the app shut down your computer when it's done defragging selected hard drives or partitions.

It's important to note that Smart Defrag is not as essential for those running Windows 7 because the OS defrags continually on it's own. But if you run external drives connected to a Windows 7 computer, this utility will still come in handy for keeping them running smoothly.

Overall, if you want a quick and solid defrag utility to make your computer run more smoothly, with added options for scheduling and other extras, you should definitely download this program. Both beginner and advanced users will have no trouble operating this solid utility.

"Installs Malware that's very difficult to remove"

January 08, 2013  |  By mcdanr

 |  Version: Smart Defrag 2 2.6 (1106)

Pros

Can defrag from boot.

Cons

As another reviewer mentioned, this program installs malware which changes your start page in all browsers to Yahoo and installs a toolbar even if you uncheck everything during the instal. And it's extremely difficult to remove it all.

Summary

I've spent hours now trying to remove all of the changes this program made to my computer, and I still can't clean it all. I was finally able to change the homepages of IE and Chrome back to their defaults and remove the toolbars, but Firefox still defaults to Yahoo when I type something in the address bar. I've set Firefox's homepage back to default, changed "keyword:URL" in about:config from Yahoo back to default, and checked for any add-ons, but that didn't fix anything.

I also ran Spybot and found two malware entries in the registry, one of which is the Widgi.Toolbar by Spigot that the other reviewer mentioned, which I'm pretty sure were both caused by this program.

The IObit website also gets a very poor trustworthiness rating from Web Of Trust, which isn't surprising given my experience. Would NOT recommend this program and will not be using any of their software again.

"Installs malware subtly, changes search engine, etc"

December 18, 2012  |  By patrick_omalley

 |  Version: Smart Defrag 2 2.6 (1106)

Pros

It used to be good.

Cons

This software now subtly installs an Iobit toolbar that is extremely difficult to get rid of, it changes your default search engine to Yahoo, and installs some other software that I still can't get rid of yet, and I am an expert at this.

Causes Google chrome to crash.

Over 2 hours wasted so far.

Summary

I wasted 2 hours on this already.

They've signed a deal with the devil. If you install this software, it will install malware, changing your machine in ways that will take hours to fix.

You then research the company "Spigot" which keeps appearing, and it is extremely difficult to find info about it, and I still haven't removed all traces of the software.

Hours wasted.
