  • Windows Defrag vs Smart Defrag

    As I am a new member can anyone suggest which utility is better to use, Windows or Smart Defrag? Thanks

    Smart Defrag!!!

    You can get a lot of information if you read the threads in this Smart Defrag section.

    Please read the posts in Think about Defragmentation!!! thread to get a better idea of fragmentation and defragmetation.

    Cheers.

        Yes, Smart Defrag is way better. More customizable and optimizes the system, not just defrag like windows.

          The Windows default defragmentation tool is made by Perfect Disk and the version in Windows Vista is set to automatically defrag all disks on the computer without any option to do otherwise. What sent me looking for a better defrag program was that the Vista defrag program would redundantly defrag my WD My Book 1TB Drive with 100's of Gigabites worth of stored files on it with no option to skip it thus wasting hours upon hours of system resources.

          After trying several of the top rated defragmentation and optimization shareware programs some of which cost as much as $50 the IObit Smart Defrag freeware program proved to be the only one that could actually improve disk performance as measured in HD Tune Pro benchtests.

          The benchtest results below show a 4.6% increase in the average transfer rate of my main hard drive as well as an improvement in access time, burst rate and a 44% drop in CPU usage as compared with the same benchtests done prior to defrag and optimization using the truly amazing and highly effective IObit Smart Defrag...

            I have had some great results with Smart Defrag over Windows. I would recommend it any day.

                I have used Diskkeeper for many years. It has always been the most powerful defrag utility on the market. It still has some special tools that an IT admin would find useful in an enterprise environment but I have found that Smart Defrag does every bit as good a job on indiividual machines. Besides that SD is free!

                  The best way to find out beyond a shadow of a doubt that Smart Defrag is the best defragmentation/optimization program is to download 5 or 6 of the world's best programs and compare them. When I did this I found that the other defraggers were each gimmiky and didn't deliver an optimized HDD the way Smart Defrag can.

                    hi guys

                    smart defrag seems to be better than windows defrag progran

                    i ran into IOBit searching for a better defrag actually

                    i use the program for a month now and i am afraid to use its Deep Optimize option

                    Can anyone assure me I can safely use it???

                      Hi demitris
                      I haven't seen any ill effects from using it by myself.
                      In my opinion it would also be strange, - after all it is a defrag program, - it doesn't delete anything.
                      επαρκής ? (sufficient measure? )
                      Cheers

                        By all means,use it.If you run the "fast optimize" first,then you can watch the process put the final touches on the file placement.I like wathching the files jump around,but hey,that's just me.

                          hi everybody

                          thanks for the information

                          by the way Solbjerg i was surprised u understand Greek writing

                          Ναι, η εξήγηση ήταν επαρκής
                          yes, the exlanation was sufficient

                            Ok demitris
                            Let us hear how you make out with the deep optimize
                            By the way I don't really understand Greek, but I have very many dictionaries, - and I like to find out.
                            Unfortunately a full measure of knowledge is exceedingly hard to attain

                              I have Smart DeFrag running continuously and also Deep Optimize as part of my weekly Spring Clean & TuneUp:
                              ASC clean up, full Avast scan, SpyBot Search & Destroy plus check for updates to apps

                              I read a recommendation somewhere, maybe here, to:
                              Turn Off Hibernation
                              Do a Windows Defrag
                              Do a Deep Optimize

                              I tried this and it seemed the Windows Defrag did move some immovable files then the Deep Optimize stacked everything into nice neat rows.
                              Keeping in mind I don't understand this stuff much at all, I was wondering if anyone thinks this is acceptable, good, bad or un-necessary etc

                              And me, I spent a while giving Smart DeFrag a lovely color scheme so now it's Golden Dots zipping around, very nice
