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.

"Works on Win7 Ultimate x64"

March 30, 2010  |  By _sorrow_

 |  Version: Smart Defrag 1.40

Pros

Seems efficient so far. GUI is nice but nothing special.

Cons

Haven't found anything yet.

Summary

I regretfully voted a previous reviewer who said that this doesn't work on Win7x64 as a useful review but then decided to investigate myself and found out that he was wrong & I couldn't take it back! So, I don't have too much to say about this app itself yet, but I wanted to let it be known.

"Great balence of features and functionality."

March 25, 2010  |  By TheDataRat

 |  Version: Smart Defrag 1.40

Pros

Choice between quick defrag, complete defrag, and complete defrag with file optimization. Simple, highly-usable interface.

Cons

Be nice to have a boot-time defrag option. Could also use a force-shutdown on finish option, and a sleep-mode on finish option.

Summary

Does what it needs to do quickly with choice of the three most desirable defrag/optimization options. Only missing component of significance: Boot time defrag.
