    Optimize Drives says I have SSD when I have HDD


    As a result it won't let me optimize the drive. If this helps I'm running fall creators update (1709) and the hard drive from device manager is specifically "Intel Optane+931GBHDD".

    Secondary HDD not found by Optimize and Defrag

    Hello,

    Upgraded to Win10 a few weeks ago. I have a 240G primary SSD (COptimize Drives says I have SSD when I have HDD :) and 1TB internal secondary HDD (EOptimize Drives says I have SSD when I have HDD :), plus a 1TB external USB backup drive (JOptimize Drives says I have SSD when I have HDD :). I wanted to determine why the internal 1TB HDD seems to have some 'missing' space so I opened Optimize Drives.
    But Optimize Drives only lists the SSD (COptimize Drives says I have SSD when I have HDD :), USB drive (JOptimize Drives says I have SSD when I have HDD :) and a System Reserved drive. It doesn't list the internal 1TB HDD.

    So far my searches have turned up problems where extra drives aren't recognized at all, but mine works fine for everything else (I've moved Libraries there, created system images there, it shows in Explorer, etc.)

    Edit: Device Manager indicates no issues with the drive. I've also right-clicked from Explorer > Properties > Tools > Optimize, and the list is still missing this drive.

    Can anyone explain this or provide a solution?

    Thank you!

    Stephen

    Win 10 Optimize Drives say I have SSD when in fact it is a HDD


    I was curious to see if my C: drive needed defragmenting so I opened Optimize Drives to find that my C: and partition D: all part of the same HDD are labeled as Solid State Drive but I do not have any *Shock. As can be seen from the screenshot The Analyze and Optimize buttons are greyed out. So my question is, is my C: drive being optimized automatically? Why does Optimize Drives says that my C: and D: drives are SSD when in fact they are HDD? *Think

    HDD Optimization problem


    Hi, On my Windows 10 system I have an SSD, a reserved for system HDD and another HDD (F) where I store most of my games. Basically automatic weekly optimization is scheduled, but I just checked the hard drive (F) and it showed me 12% fragmentation saying "needs optimization". I run optimization manually, but it still shows me the same 12% of fragmentation and suggesting optimization. Is it a problem with a disk or a bug in Windows optimization?
