Hi Cicely, Sorry but earlier I was in a state of PANIC, when I first posted here. I spent the past two whole days reformating my entire hard drive, and reinstalling back my previous programs and settings, so I don't have the data any more. I think Smart Defrag "brought back to life" all the previously deleted files on my drive which I deleted using the Recycle Bin all this while. That is the ONLY explanation I can think of. So when it defragmented my drive, it also brought back to life most of the "deleted" data. There was no way to clean it except maybe using a disk wiper or something, which I only thought of AFTER I reformatted my entire hard drive. I never encountered this situation before, so I was clearly shocked. But if someone had told me that MAYBE its deleted data coming back to life after defragmenting....and advised me on what to do....maybe I would have reacted better. Anyway, what is done is done. I am moving on from this episode. I think maybe the only useful feature of Smart Defrag is its supposed to shut down my PC after defrag - but it does not. FYI, I tried Auslogic Disk Defragmenter after losing the 42 GB, and Auslogic managed to shut my PC down.......
Ok, I uninstalled it and my free space went back up to 199 Gb. But it does not account for 42 Gb still missing. Have analyzed with the core Windows 7 Disk Defragmenter and it finds 0% needs to be defragmented. So, does this mean I really lost 42 Gb for good on account of your software?????
Hi, I installed Smart Defrag 4 and ran defrag twice, each time losing tons of drive space after the defrag is complete. The first time, I lost 10+ Gb and the next time I lost 40+ Gb. My original Free Space was around 241 Gb, and now it is only 193Gb. Also, the computer does NOT SHUT DOWN after defrag. I use Win 7 and long time ago, I used an Iobit product called Disk Defragmenter 6 (if not mistaken), which worked quite ok. Never had this kind of problem I only stopped using it because it was taking up a lot of resources on my PC. And I never updated it because it worked ok for me, and I know that if something is not broken, don't "fix" it. NEW IS NOT BETTER.... Now, this is unbelievable! I am going to uninstall Smart Defrag 4 after this. I only started using Smart Defrag 4 since 2 days ago. The 1st time, I used Defrag and Fully Optimise, and the 2nd time I used Defrag and Prioritize. I went to bed both times, and get a rude surprise when I awaken in the morning. Now that I come here, I only realized this Smart Defrag 4 is a Beta version!!! I mean, how can you offer a buggy program for download to everyone??? You don't even give a choice to download an older version (maybe Smart Defrag 3)? Any suggestions on how to regain my hard drive space??? I am going to hold Iobit accountable for this lost disk space.... PS: I am really ANGRY and shocked by this and I have uninstalled Smart Defrag 4. As far as I am concerned, it is a piece of crap. You should not be offering a BUGGY program for download!
