    You should use the built-in Quoting features of the forum so that this is obvious. Like I have done here, as well as attributing it to the person you are quoting...

    'Defrag on 8/8.1 does not defrag SSDs, it sends commands to trim to optimise it so its perfectly safe to use. I use it without any problems.

    Also a warning about using 3rd party defraggers. You must check to see whether they detect SSDs and act accordingly'

    i disagree Swarfega, you are partially right, true for internal SSD's, not true for external SSD's connected via USB.

    I nearly missed your post because you didn't quote me and thereby making it easier to spot.

    Anyway when I made that post some four weeks ago, I only had internal SSD'S in mind because they are the more common device.

    Hi all,
    I'm new to SSD's .. couple simple questions?
    Samsung 850pro for past 3 weeks or so on win10tp on my laptop.

    Is there any reasons not to manually push that Optimize(trim) the drive partitions? Adds wear & tear or shortens life, any downsides?

    I guess same question for ChkDsk ?

    Thanks !

    Don't worry about the life of the SSD. It will outlive any HDD.

    Well Mystere i did put it in ' ' quotes.

    You sound like my wife.....

    No it's a joke

    But if you had read the whole thread you would have noticed it where not my words;

    Furthermore i already posted somes AGES ago that defragmentation happens on USB SSD's, but it is normal one does not read everything. Me i am just the same, but that is because lack of time.

    Cannot spend 1 -2 hours here on the board every day.

    Besides this is the only board i am on for the same reason.
