With the increase in the size of hard drives, the task of maintaining the hard drive performance has become more and more boring. People often tend to forget the most basic thing which helps in improving hard diskperformance by many folds, defragmentation. For those who aren’t aware of the term defragmentation, defragmentation is a process that reduces the amount of fragmentation, that is it reduces the seek time of your hard drive. It basically arranges the data accordingly to your needs, as most used applications are kept at the beginning, barely used at the end, and so on. You must be well aware of the default Windows Disk Defragmenter. Just to tell you Windows Disk Defragmenter does the task of defragmentation like any other defragging tool. The only thing which Windows Disk Defragmenter lacks is the features that other defragging software supports. Smart Defrag is a free defragging tool worthy of appraisal. Smart Defrag is very fast and efficient in defragmenting hard drives for faster file loading and higher disk performance.
Smart Defrag defragmentation may be fast, but it still does the same task as Windows Disk Defragmenter. The difference comes in speed and support for features like Automatic Defrag, Boot Defrag, and Report regarding analysis and defragmentation. Automatic Defrag is a great help for people who always forget to defragment their hard drives. Automatic Defrag runs in your background defragging you specified hard drives without using a fraction of your resources. No defragging tool supports defragmentation of MFT (Master File Table). Smart Defrag supports defragmentation of MFT, page and hibernation files, and system files, thus defragging your hard disk for maximum performance. In the report you will see a map describing your hard drives allocation of files.
The map shows different colors like grey (free space), dark blue (Rarely used files), green (Frequently used files), magenta (Directories), yellow (MFT), black (Unmovable), red (Fragmented files), and cyan (moving files). If you’re among the group of people who believe in scheduling tasks, then this defragging tool offers you scheduled disk defragmentation. You can configure schedule defragmentation from the settings tab on the top-right corner of the Window. You can even select your desired number of partitions for defragmentation.
I personally liked Smart Defrag tool for support for features like Automatic and Boot Defrag, making your system hard disk totally defragmented. It makes the task of defragmenting larger hard drives child’s play.via[techyfuzz]
