Who is Smart Defrag for?

Smart Defrag is perfect for gamers working with heavy software, multiple files, and limited disk space. Using the programme, gamers can improve disk performance and shorten loading and running time of files. In fact, Smart Defrag has a specific tool called the Game Defrag, which allows users to manually add games for separate storage from other defragged files.

What are the main features of Smart Defrag?

The process of defrag or defragmentation simply means that files are organised and the level of fragmentation, minimised. Performing such an action can improve system performance and allow your computer to support larger files. Smart Defrag is a free defragmentation programme that does just that.

The programme works in the background, continuously optimising drive performance. It is lightweight, with SSD Trim functionality, a specific Gaming defrag, multiple language support (supporting over 35 languages), seamless processes, and many more features.

Smart Defrag works on all versions of Windows, including Windows 10, Vista, and XP. This is great, given that file loading is one of the main issues faced by Windows users. Smart defrag significantly reduces the loading time. The fragmented pieces of files are brought closer together for better loading performance. 

The programme interface is clean and intuitive, where each hard drive is displayed separately, organised according to name, type, space available, and total space. This information helps to prioritise organisation. Disk cleanup using Smart Defrag is quick and smooth, and specific details about fragmentation and defragmentation are viewable.

Once the defragmentation begins, you can monitor defrag time using a display that shows the remaining time. A fast defrag option is also available, and the programme recommends the action that you need to take for the defrag process. A pro version has the option available to start the defrag on system reboot and allows defragmentation of specific and registry files. With the pro version, you can also set the default defrag to once in 7 days.

Why does Smart Defrag work well?

Smart Defrag is a lightweight programme. The defrag process may take a while, but your system will not slow down while it takes place. Smart Defrag is highly customisable, allowing you to adjust accordingly to your requirements.

For gamers, Smart Defrag facilitates manual defragmentation of large files for separation from the system SSDs. You can optimise apps and files to run at their best capacity. This is a big plus as file loading and running times are significantly improved and there are much lesser lags during the operational performance while playing a game. A separate Gamers Defrag tool helps to separate defragment the gaming files, away from the SSDs.

What are some alternatives?

Some of the alternatives to Smart Defrag are SpeedFan, HWMonitor, Minitool Partition Wizard Free Edition, and more.

What’s the verdict?

Smart Defrag works rather well in its functionality. For gamers, this is a perfect accompanying software programme. It’s reliable and easy to use. It is worth giving this programme a try.
