    SSD won't stay Optimized Win 10 (2004)


    Ok, before today, after I ran Optimize on my SSD it would say, x days since Optimization.
    Since the upgrade to 2004, if I Optimize it reacts as it should for about 3-4 minutes, then says: Needs Optimization.

    Partitions C:, D:, and E:, are the SSD. Brand new Samsung 860 EVO 500GB.

    Then ran this command from a guide: fsutil behavior query DisableDeleteNotify
    My results don't look like the results in the guide.

    /e Disk activity in Task Manager is less than 1%. I'm not really worried about this (I don't think), but it is definitely behaving differently than it did on Win 10 1909.

    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.
