    "Not perfect, but damn fine"

    September 29, 2008  |   By reppac

    Version: Smart Defrag 1.0

    Pros

    Fast, reliable, does what it says on the tin

    Cons

    doesn't appear to defrag free space, so struggles to defrag fully as the free space is not contiguous. This also means that when a new file is added it will almost always be immediately fragmented.

    Summary

    Its simple and works well. When used in conjunction with Windows Defrag - you have a good solid tool set.

    "It's really SMART!"

    September 25, 2008  |   By firevas

    Version: Smart Defrag 1.0

    Pros

    Free, runs in the background, can schedule defragmentation tasks, fast and effective.

    Cons

    Ah...this one's a bit annoying. The Auto defrag thing does not monitor all drives. Even if u check all the drives, the next time u reboot, they all appear unchecked, meaning, it stops monitoring the other drives when u restart.

    Summary

    wow.....a good product, absolutely stunning ability, it runs in the background and defragments files whenever your machine has some free ram to spare. You can also defragment and apparently optimize your drive manually. You can schedule defragmentation too, much to the comfort of some users. Coming to the cons department, I'm sure they will find a solution soon. Eventually, I advice all of u to run this thing in the background, and see the result for yourselves, because you yourselves are the best reviewer for yourself....Got me? Phew....Never mind....

    """ THE BEST OUT THERE"" !!! AND I LOVE IT !!!!!!"

    September 24, 2008  |   By mark bevan

    Version: Smart Defrag 1.0

    Pros

    As i mentioned before this is the best Defrag out there. It's so easy to use, it's like child's play. Also it's very efficient at it's job and the best part is the fact it's free!! Which is unbelievable for such quality software.

    Cons

    Only slight problem ( again which i mentioned before), if you have low memory the auto defrag could be a bit of a drain on your system. Something you should be aware of, otherwise just use manual.

    Summary

    I really love this software and have been following it's progress through the Beta versions for ages. And now the final product is here WOW! Many people have been raving about Auslogics Disk Defrag but i can assure you IObit Smart Defrag is much better. Ok it's not the fastest out there but it's the most efficient, compacting the files together very nicely. Auslogics leaves the files all over the place, your computer then takes longer to find the files hence becoming slower and defeating the object of the software. If that's the case you may as well stick to the built in Widows version! Also with Smart Defrag it places your files according to the ones you access the most, which makes your computer run even faster!
    So think about it, do you want Defrag software that's very fast but doesn't do a complete job!? ( and having to use Widows Defrag after!!) Or do you want Defrag software which is slightly slower but does a far more efficient job!? And in the long run keeps your computer running at it's maximum speed. Well if it's the latter, download IObit Smart Defrag from above and see the difference it makes!!

    "So user friendly mom could use it!"

    September 13, 2008  |   By dementedhumor

    Version: Smart Defrag 1.0

    Pros

    The best thing about this program is that it will constantly defrag. I help a lot of people "tune up" their computers because of their ignorance and lack of interest and this is a program that will help those that don't enjoy computer maintenance.

    Cons

    Have not come across any yet. I'm concerned about possible use of to much of the computer's resorces and whether it is constantly runing the hard drive's motor, but I have no reason to believe it does any harm yet.

    Summary

    Great program- especially for those who would prefer not to worry about when to defrag.
