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.

"Great Piece Of Software"

January 13, 2011  |  By panflash

 |  Version: Smart Defrag 1.5

Pros

Simple to use and defrag's fast...

Cons

None, at this time.

Summary

Note: When you first load the program for the first time. Right click the icon in the taskbar (near clock) and select "Configure Avira". Click on "Update" in the left-hand box. Put a check mark in the"Repeat Job If Time Has Expired" and the "Apply" button at bottom. This will keep it updated if missed during an online update. Enjoy!!!

"A good defragger"

January 11, 2011  |  By trhopkins

 |  Version: Smart Defrag 1.5

Pros

I like that I get to set whether I do a quick defrag or a system wide House cleaning. I like being able to set it to launch on its own.

Cons

Nuke "Auto"! My system slowed down so much from having to load the auto that I decided to live with out it.

Summary

Good program that performs a necessary task well.

"Slow and unresponsive."

January 09, 2011  |  By ranhan55

 |  Version: Smart Defrag 1.5

Pros

I liked the reviews I read about the product and thought it would be a good replacement for Windows' Defrag.

Cons

None of the time readouts given were accurate. And it took longer than Windows' Defrag.
