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.

"Bad add on!!"

January 10, 2010  |  By ringel05

 |  Version: Smart Defrag 1.30

Pros

Great utility - NASTY ADD ON

Cons

Just upgraded. Even though I indicated I did not want Conduit.com as my search engine it loaded it anyway. It took me an hour to find and remove everything associated with conduit to allow it to be blocked in Firefox!

Summary

Unless the Smart Defrag people have an adequate explanation as to what happened I will never use this product again. It's too bad, much, much better than the generic Windows defrag.

"Seems to do a good job, fast and thorough"

January 10, 2010  |  By darrol1

 |  Version: Smart Defrag 1.30

Pros

I assume It's doing the job well and it works fast with Windows 7.

Cons

none that I've know of

Summary

So far so good - I like the software... but no way for me to truly know if it's making any difference - good or bad - in the performance of my computer. For all I know it could be causing or adding to problems I have that may be due to the Windows 7 or my cpu. I get error messages indicating out of memory or not enough storage available to run applications, but I have more than enough of both, and need to reboot to resolve the problem.
