The way this works is you setup Smart Defrag to defragment the locked files when Windows isn't in use.
Choose to enable boot time defrag and then select any of the hard drives you have connected.
The boot time defrag can be configured for the next reboot only, the first boot of every day, on every reboot, or the first boot on a specific day like every 7 days, 10 days, etc.
Next, just add the files that you want Smart Defrag to defrag during a reboot. There are also preset areas like page files and hibernation files, Master File Table, and system files.
Smart Defrag is a free defrag program that intelligently determines the best time to defrag your PC.
You can setup Smart Defrag to continually defragment your computer throughout the day, and even do so while it's rebooting.
