    New SSD


    Just installed a 500gb Crucial SSD and using Aomei partition tool to copy my boot drive onto the SSD, when done do I need to disable some win 10 maintenance tasks.?

    I have read disk defragmentation tools can cause problems with an Ssd so is there anything I need to disable?

    Windows should see that you have a SSD now and disable it. SSD's use TRIM instead of defragging.


    To double check that it all went as expected, head to your Start menu and type "defrag" in the search box. Click on "Disk Defragmenter". Click on "Configure Schedule" and hit "Select Disks". If all went well, Windows will realize it's on an SSD and your SSD won't even be an option in this menu (if you're on Windows 8, it will show up in the list as an SSD instead, and defragmentation will be disabled).

    Lastly, we'll want to make sure TRIM is turned on, which keeps your drive from slowing down over time. Open up a Command Prompt and type in:
    fsutil behavior query DisableDeleteNotify
    It will either give you a 0 or a 1 as a result. If you get a zero, that means TRIM is enabled. If you get a 1, make sure you have a TRIM-compatible SSD—you may have to Google your SSD's model number to find out.

    Just run winsat formal in an admin command prompt and reboot, Windows will take care of the rest. Windows 8 and 10 were designed with SSD's in mind. The ONLY thing YOU need to do is make sure AHCI is turned on in BIOS

    Turned maintenance back on for all drives as when I press optimize it says trimming drive so thats cool. Any I downloaded visual bcdedit and fixed my dual boot problem after cloning.

    I was reading this thread out of curiosity and decided to check since I'm using an SSD. TRIM is turned on, but Windows is showing the SSD as available for defragging. I turned off the scheduler because it seemed to be my only option. I can always defrag my data drive manually.
