One of the simplest ways to make sure your PC runs as efficiently as possible is to defragment your hard disk, and Smart Defrag is a great way to do it.

As with the defragment utility built into Windows, Smart Defrag is a freebie that analyses your hard disk, shows you the results, and then lets you decide whether to defragment.

But Smart Defrag also offers extras as well, such as several levels of defragmentation, including whether to merely defragment your hard disk, or also move files around for optimum placement.

There's also a simple-to-use scheduler in Smart Defrag, so that you can schedule your defragments at regular intervals. You can also customise the defragmentation in many ways, such as not defragging when your PC is on battery power.

One particularly nice feature of Smart Defrag is Auto Defrag, which defragments your hard disk only when you computer is idle, so that you don't interrupt or slow down any work. You can also customise Auto Defrag by telling it to pause when your system exceeds a certain percentage of resource usage, for example.

Note that by default, Smart Defrag installs the Yahoo Toolbar, so if you don't want it installed, uncheck the box when you install the program.

MSI GT76

It really doesn’t get more “gaming laptop” than this.

Jack Jeffries

MSI GS75

As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.

The MSI PS63 is an amazing laptop and I would definitely consider buying one in the future.
