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 30 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 autodefrag running continually, it uses about a quarter of 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 its 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.

"I am not sure if it is good or bad"

August 21, 2009  |  By mlrc

 |  Version: Smart Defrag 1.11

Pros

It seems to be very fast.

Cons

Not sure what to say here

Summary

It appears to be fast but I don't really know if it is doing a good job or not. I wish there was a criteria of how to judge the performance of this type of software.

"Does what it says it does!"

June 26, 2009  |  By Tonygs48

 |  Version: Smart Defrag 1.11

Pros

This has been really handy, works when MS doesn't.

Cons

It could do a bit better with the deep optimization, but it's still better than other products I've seen.

Summary

Overall it's a really good product, incredible when you consider the price (I'm still using the free version!) It was easy to download and install, and there was enough on screen information to start and go. That feature makes it really good for those who consider themselves technically challenged, and a big plus if you need to make a decision between this or something else.

Updated on Apr 8, 2010

After three updates, it's still a better choice than competing products, and the free version does everything the average user needs for basic system maintenance.
