[QUOTE=troy512;1918860]i have iobit smart defrag. right now i only defrag using the manual method. does anyone use a auto defrag tool such as this. the only problem i can see is it may interfere with my dvd rip/burn process. if anyone has a comment please let me know. also if anyone uses a defrag program either manual or auto which you feel is better please let me know.
I have been using it for quite some time on Vista I let it run auto in the tray and have no problems but it can slow a machine down it would depend on what you computer specs are.
As far as burning I always shut it down before copying or ripping anything just a good practice so I guess If I were you I would just not have it come up on start up then when finished with your ripping ect. just launch it and let it run or do manual defrag.
