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.

I would recommend this device for families and small businesses who want one safe place to store all their important digital content and a way to easily share it with friends, family, business partners, or customers.

Brother QL-820NWB Professional Label Printer

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.

Brainstorming, innovation, problem solving, and negotiation have all become much more productive and valuable if people can easily collaborate in real time with minimal friction.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.

The Huddle Board’s built in program; Sharp Touch Viewing software allows us to easily manipulate and edit our documents (jpegs and PDFs) all at the same time on the dashboard.
