Story Topic:


The last couple of versions (including this one) have NOT been portable. They are creating a Scheduled Task called "SmartDefragUpdate". From what I can tell, the task is permanent and is not deleted when the program is exited. Has anyone else noticed this??

I think you did something wrong during installation if you created a nonportable task because that did not happen on mine at all. You should try uninstalling and redoing it, carefully this time. Smile

"The pen is mightier than the sword." True enough, but only if you get in the first stroke.

It was a bug in 2.9.0 and one previously. It was fixed in 2.9.0 Rev 2 released earlier today.

Sometimes, the impossible can become possible, if you're awesome!
