I have been using Iobit’s Smart Defrag for many years since Windows Vista, and it always work well, and never crashed on me during a disk defrag. It is also a lot more faster, feature rich, and nicer looking than the standard Windows Disk Defrag which comes bundled with Windows. I am now using Smart Defrag 2.7 on Windows 8 for the last few months, and it works great as a free disk defrag program. My favorite features are automatic disk defrag, boot-time defrag, and Defrag and Fully Optimize. I also like that I can set Smart Defrag to shutdown my computer when it finish defragmentation of my hard drive, so I don’t have to manually shutdown my computer at a latter time.
