Editors' Review

+

Smart Defrag 3 hits all the notes you'd expect from a defragger, but it is too aggressive in terms of advertising. It throws recommendations for other programs at you at every turn. Still, it makes up for that pestering with performance that rivals most defrag programs for Windows.

This program tries to replace Windows' default defragmentation widget by being more advanced and offering more style, features, and customizations. We're not kidding about replacing, either -- the program will turn off your usual defragmenter and install other programs if you don't uncheck those options during install, so be careful. Once you have Smart Defrag 3 installed, you'll be very happy with its futuristic layout that offers some customization and a nice hard drive map that is a delight to read. It lets you set automatic and boot time defrags, as well -- but you might want to program those to happen when you're not using your computer, as the program took upwards of 30 minutes to defrag when we tested it. It was smart enough to recognize our SSD and not defrag it, though. The program has an "action center" that claims to recommend performance fixes, but they are all just recommendations for other programs made by the app's developers.

It's not as if those programs are bad, by any means, it's just a little obnoxious to see nonstop advertisements for other programs. Outside of that and somewhat slow performance, Smart Defrag 3 offers everything you'd want in a defragmenting program. It's a fine replacement for Windows' default and compares favorably to top programs like Defraggler.

"Excellent Defragementer"

February 03, 2015  |  By atunis58041

 |  Version: Smart Defrag 3 3.3.0.384

Pros

With recent upgrades to the scanning engine, Smart Defrag has improved dramatically from earlier versions. While a complete can take a bit longer than before, the scans are very thorough, and the optimization does an excellent job cleaning up the files scattered all over the drive. This deserves a much higher ranking than is reflected in the scores!

Cons

A complete defrag and optimization can take some time, but is well worth it.

Summary

This is one significantly improved defragementer..

"Top, very good!"

January 27, 2015  |  By Crysantheme

 |  Version: Smart Defrag 3 3.3.0.384

Pros

This program is great and easy to use ... am very happy with it.
Smart Defrag is the best Defragmenter!

Cons

The design selection could be better. Wallpaper Using the PC, or several skins to choose from.

Summary

Use Smart Defrag for a long time and am very excited about the program, even by the Pro version. Like it very much.
Have seen many defragmenter tried but no program is as good as IObit Smart Deftag.
Unsurpassed quickly and thoroughly equipped with many features that no other programof the sort.
For example defragmentation when booting the PC, or to affect idle silently in the background without affecting the performance of the laptop.

Would highly recommend those who want to keep their PC or laptop in top condition.Use only this.

Many thanks to IObit for the great software.

"Total waste of time, does absolutely NOTHING!"

January 02, 2015  |  By salazarjohn

 |  Version: Smart Defrag 3 3.3.0.384

Pros

Looks nice
Does whatever it does quickly

Cons

auto downloads as part of Advanced System Care
doesn't work

Summary

I have 7 hard drives in my system
1. SSD
2-7 are all WD 2tb reds

on

E. before 11% fragmented after 11% fragmented
F. before 1% after 1%
G. Before 34% after 34%
H. Before 48% after 47%

WTH? This is one of the advanced system care programs that automaticly downloads when you use ASC. I have uninstalled this 3 times now but somewhere along the lines it re installs itself.

Total waste of time. Does't matter how many times you run it the numbers never change.

So far I have only positive things to say about the program. Have driven it a few times, and it seems that the PC is stabilized and running faster.

Cons

Not that I am aware of. ;)

Now I've read reviews from 1 star to 5 stars. I have not experienced the negative things some mentions, and does not expect that it will happen, otherwise I'm sure the support will be helpful.

"Smart Defrag Has BUGS"

December 03, 2014  |  By Tregato923

 |  Version: Smart Defrag 3 3.3.0.384

Pros

I love the way the program seems to work seamlessly in the background but I found BUGS...see below.

Cons

These Anti-Virus checkers found the following (on Dec 3, 2014) inside Smart Defrag:

Antivirus Result Update
DrWeb.....................Program.Unwanted.34
ESET-NOD32 a variant of Win32/OpenCandy.A
GData......................Win32.Adware.iObit.A
McAfee........................Artemis!52C01602DB74
McAfee-GW-Edition..............Artemis
TrendMicro-HouseCall.............Suspicious_GEN.F47V1119

Summary

Great idea...but full of garbage. Run Virus Total to see for yourself.

"Used this for 3 years with no problems. Great product."

November 26, 2014  |  By ronniewesthead

 |  Version: Smart Defrag 3 3.3.0.384

Pros

Very efficient and easy to use. Great graphics and lots of info on display.

Cons

I've noted that some people are reporting hidden apps and stuff in the download. Might I suggest that you download any software directly from iobit and NOT from a third-party vendor. It is THEY who attach all sorts of hidden crap and toolbars.

Summary

Iobit continue to develop and upgrade their products and I have had legit licences for them for a few years now. DONT buy from a third-party vendor and DONT tick the option for automatic renewal when you purchase. You will be contacted when it is due and offered a HUGE discount to renew. And it's worth it!!
