Smart Defrag

Apple and Linux computers are very tidy minded with the files, but Windows tends to get fragmented files and to improve performance you need to defrag the computer on a relatively regular basis. You can set it to be done automatically through the Control Panel, but then you might be doing something and find your computer is a bit sluggish when , in fact, it is running a defrag in the background. I always like to see it happening. Windows changed and made a red box throwing up cubes which indicated a defrag and that was nowhere near as informative or mesmerising as watching all the little memory blocks being sorted out. I tend to find it a calming activity. It is better than waiting for the kettle to boil or watching paint dry. I actually find watching a defrag has a good effect on me! Smart Defrag by IObit is very effective and fast. You can see the blocks being tidied up and you can choose your level of optimisation. It’s a free download and a very handy piece of software to have on board. The most noticeable difference for me was how quickly my computer shut down after I had defragged it. Windows 7 has been very good compared with other versions of Windows, but you do need to do your house keeping and, to be honest, I quite like doing it. I miss it on the other OSs, but I have blogged about GConf for Ubuntu and OnYx for Apple. Both those programmes have been more than helpful to me.
