  1. Disc Optimisation & Defragment will not update


    I transferred my system disk from a small SSD to a larger HDD. Then updated Windows 8.1 to Windows 10. But the Disk Optimiser and Defragment sscreen has not updated . So I still have the SSD recorded as C drive and I cannot analyse or optimise the new system disk.


    Seems to be the app has not updated to the real world and thinks nothing has changed. Help !!

    :)

    So I can under the " defragment and optimise drives " box, optimise my SSD safely because it is only running the TRIM command and NOT defragging the SSD correct ?

    Side note, it says for my SSD, Current Status - Needs optimisation (376 days since last run)

    You are certain that it is not going to defrag the SSD, it is only going to run the TRIM ?

    Hi,

    I see there is a bit of a discussion going on here ( i'm the original poster asking the question ), I took Patricia Guenot advice and clicked on " optimise ".

    As we all know, when you defrag a HDD it'll say things like Pass 1, reallocating, defragmenting, things like that, which I expect to see, when I clicked on optimise for the SSD I didn't get any of that, and it maybe took 3 seconds to complete, were a normal
    " defrag " process ( depending on HDD size ) would take anywhere between 30mins to several hours, so my conclusion is that Patricia noting that she does have SSD's herself and would know, was right and it did in fact " optimise " the SSD ( as in run the TRIM
    command ) and NOT defrag it.

    Side note, I am not a technician of any kind so I was only going off someone else's recommendation and I originally asked whether she was certain it would not defrag and she said absolutely yes to quote her.

    So, optimising and defragging are 2 completely different things when it comes to defragging a HDD and optimising an SSD, am I right or wrong ?

    Disc Optimisation & Defragment will not update

    " Defragment and Optimise Drives "

    Hi,

    First of all, I would like to describe the laptop that I have. I have an 128gb SSD which holds the OS on it and a 1 terabyte HDD which I use for all my programs, documents, music, videos etc etc, both came with the laptop. Now I know its safe and normal
    to defrag a HDD which I do probably 1 every 2 to 3 months but for the solid state drive I don't know what to do. When you search for defrag, the defrag and optimise box appears and shows both of my drives. For the SSD it won't give me the option to " analyse
    " but it does give me the option to " optimise ". Now does optimise mean defragmentation or does it actually mean optimise because those 2 words mean completely different things when were talking about HDD and SSD's.

    Does optimisation mean defragmentation under the " defragment and optimise drives " ?

    ( Side note, I am perfectly aware defragging a SSD is very bad due to its finite number of write cycles, there is also a lot of discussion online about not defragging an SSD because it doesn't need it ).
