    My SSD hasn't been optimized in a month according to the Defragment & Optimize utility. However my HDD is being defragmented automatically. Windows is installed on the SSD if that matters.

    How can I get Windows to start doing the weekly trimming?

  2. Windows 10 can not optimize HDD, says it is a SSD Help

    Hi Steve,

    Thank you for posting your question in the Microsoft Community.

    Appreciate your efforts to work on this issue.

    • Does the BIOS recognizes the disk as HDD or SSD?

    Suggest you to set the Optimize Drives Service to start automatically from the services window to check if that helps.

    1. Open the run window, type ‘services.msc’ and press Enter.
    2. Search for Optimize Drives Service and select the start-up type as automatic. Also ensure to start the service.

    If you have set SATA controller to AHCI mode for Solid State Drive, in Device Manager it would show as SATA hard disk.

    Follow these steps:

    1. Click start, type “Defragment” and click “Defragment and Optimize your drives”.
    2. On the “Defragment and Optimize your drives” window. Make sure that your SSD is categorized as an SSD.
    3. If it’s not, then you can set it as a SSD on your bios. This way, you don’t have to exclude your SSD or disable any scheduled defragmentation.
    Disclaimer: Modifying BIOS/ complementary metal oxide semiconductor (CMOS) settings incorrectly can cause serious problems that may prevent your computer from booting properly. Microsoft cannot guarantee that any problems resulting from the configuring
    of BIOS/CMOS settings can be solved. Modifications of the settings are at your own risk.

    Hope this helps.

    Let us know if you got the help you needed.

  4. SSD hasn't been optimized in a month but is set to do it weekly.

    Windows 10 & Optimize Drives schedule

    Hello,

    I'm using Windows 10 (version 1909, OS build 18363.900 - latest available for my PC), which is installed on a Kingston A400 SSD. As well known, the SSD needs to be trimmed (optimized) weekly. Windows have that Optimize Drives tool (the old Defragmenter)
    which can do this. Unfortunately, even if the schedule is turned on and set to weekly, nothing happens. It says that the SSD was optimized 23 days ago. Why the weekly schedule doesn't work? I have to say that if I set that to monthly, the tool perfectly optimizes
    the SSD monthly. How can I fix this, to force Windows to trim the SSD weekly?

    Thank you!
