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 40 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 auto-defrag running continually, it uses about half 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 it's 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.

"Certainly a useful utility"

June 10, 2011  |  By The_Count_Of_Basie

 |  Version: Smart Defrag 2.0.1

Pros

Relatively small footprint and unobtrusive...automatically defrags at least system files while computer is idle (just as it claims), in addition to full functionality, including scheduled defrags (which I rarely use).

Cons

None that I can think of, with the exception that it doesn't defrag single files or folders (Piriforms' Defraggler does, which makes it my program of preference...I have both installed, with Smart Defrag loaded in boot)

Summary

IObit still seems to have a bad rep due to the MBAM incident, but I find most of their programs quite effective and useful...this one is no exception. I'd certainly recommend this one as a set and forget background utility

"Great walkaway defragmenter fordata <br />Effecient storage"

June 08, 2011  |  By bcs2master

 |  Version: Smart Defrag 2.0.1

Pros

Good to de-frag the data as a good system management tool. Should you have a failure, recovery is more likely when the files are together than spread all over the drive.

Cons

IT doesn't keep tabs on the fragmentation and remind me to do it. I'm still the weak link. ( I don't schedule, as my usage is not predictable )

Summary

Good for everyone, smart users need to heed their fragmentation.
