For the past few year I have been using Auslogic’s Disk Defragmentor and I have been pleased with its performance. I also like the program because it is free. With this thought in mind, I have made a decision in that I will only use free stuff on my computer. Why? I firmly believe that the free programs are just as good as their commercial alternatives.
So last week I took a look at another free software program from IObit.com called Smart Defrag. The current version of this disk defragmention program does a very good job in defraging your hard disk, but also has a setting to defrag and optimize as well. Overall I found the program to be fairly quick in defragging my system, which is Vista SP1.
On their web site IObit states:
The World’s Most Efficient Defragmenter
What’s the primary cause of slow/unstable PC performance? It’s disk fragmentation. Smart Defrag helps defragment your hard drives more efficiently than any other product on the market –– free or not.
This powerful, award-winning free defragmenter is 100% safe and clean with no adware, spyware, or viruses.
Some of you believe that defraging a hard disk is not necessary and I respect your opinion. But if you believe that defraging your drive is helpful, may I recommend giving this program a try.
