  • how to disable smart defrag update message

    I don't want to update to the pro version of smart defrag and I don't want to have the smart defrag update message nagging me to update it each time windows starts. I am content with the defrag contained in ASCU. So, how do I disable this update message?

    Does anyone know? Is it possible to disable the update message?

      Hello BestRip,

      Welcome to our forum.

      May I know why you don't want to update Smart Defrag to the latest version to enjoy better features, please? If you don't want to get the update message, you can click the button "Remind me later" at the left bottom of the update message screen.

      Cheers!

        Hi Cicely,
        Well it's like this... my C: drive is a SSD and as far as I know ASCU takes care of the trim and there is no need for more defrag functions there.Then I have a 1.5TB storage drive (D:) that doesn't get fragmented enough to justify any defragmentation software at all, or at least the ASCU defrag takes care of this well enough for my needs. On another note I think it is far to expensive for MY needs. And as a small parenthesis I have (when I needed it several years ago) found a freeware that was totally awesome at defragging, did it so completely and at such speed it totally blew the competition out of the drives. I won't name it here, but I could give it to you in a personal message if you'd like.
        ?Cheers!

          Yeah, I want to know this as well. It seems like the app is updated, what seems like, twice a week. And then we are harassed into updating the app. I paid for all of these apps, but I am still harassed constently!

            Hello BestRip,

            Smart Defrag can trim your SSD to improve your disk performance. Althought Advanced SystemCare can care your disk, Smart Defrag can provide more comprehensive optimization of all your disks. That is, Smart Defrag can improve the disk more professionally. Please send me a PM about name of the program you got and the better features you valued.

            Cheers.

              Hello Russell,

              Welcome to our forum.

              If you don't want to get the update message, you can click the button "Remind me later" at the left bottom of the update message screen.

              By the way, if you are Smart Defrag Pro user, you can enjoy Auto Update freely.

              Cheers!

                That's nice, Cicely, but how do I keep it from running at all? It's not on the startup list where every single other company puts their update checkers. How do I stop Smart Defrag from running anything on startup? At what point did IObit decide that I shouldn't be allowed to keep it from running anything unless I wanted to? What else is it doing that I'm not allowed to have any control over?

                  No answer. And uninstall. Something is fishy here, and this is hardly a much needed app.

                    Hi! I seen an old post here and its look like that there is no option to disable the auto-update . I am looking for a chance if we can disable the update through the firewall settings. but i think this is how their system works.

                      Hello all,

                      May I know why you don't want to update Smart Defrag to the latest version, please? It won't pop up after you update. If you are a Smart Defrag Pro user, it is recommended to enable Auto Update in Settings.

                      Here is a screenshot of the location of the feature Auto Update.

                      Anyway, I conveyed your opinions about it to our product team.

                          Hi BestRip,
                          You can try these things to disable update pop up message.

                          - Go to settings and uncheck the "Check Automatically for Updates" checkbox.
                          - Disable the Smart Defrag Update in Scheduled Tasks for Windows.
                          - Run msconfig in the command prompt, then start up tab and uncheck it. Cheers!
