    Just installed a ssd drive in my dell latitude e6410...


    good evening,

    I just installed a ssd drive in my dell latitude e6410 laptop. now some questions about how to keep the system in good shape..

    1. is windows defender a good enough anti-virus/ security program or should I choose something else?

    2. optimizing of ssd drive... how often?

    3. is disk clean up safe for ssd drives? I know not to defragment ssd drives but what about disk clean up?


    so far seems like the ssd drive made a big performance improvement

    To answer your questions.
    1. Yes Although I prefer a third party program.
    2. Let Windows do it for you
    3. Yes

    1. It's fine for general use.

    2/3.. you don't need to and in fact doing a defrag on an SSD can speed up the process of wearing out. so don't..

    Question #3 was about Disk Clean Up.

    I agree though. You never want to run defrag on a SSD.

    Windows 10 knows all about SSDs, and you probably should leave the built-in 'Optimise' enabled. It doesn't do a defrag as such, but it does some tidying up which is beneficial.

    See this article.

    So the answer to question 2 is that you should leave disk optimisation enabled.

    Enjoy!

    I would recommend you open Windows' "Optimize Drives" GUI, however, and just confirm that it shows your media type as "Solid state drive" - as long as that's listed correctly, you can just let it be.
