    You can- but there's no point and you should not. Access time is not constrained by mechanical head movement, being- guess what- solid state.

    Windows looks after your SSD quite adequately by itself.

    No, You should however verify if TRIM is enabled:

    I agree with roy, you should never defrag an SSD. If you know anything about how files are assigned space on hard drives and how they can change places over time, you'l see that defragging is meant for circular spinning platters rather than micro chips.

    I experienced first hand in the early days of SSDs, what happened when you defragged one. I had to return it

    You may want to look into over provisioning your SSD as well if your manufacturer recommends it. I have a Toshiba OCZ SSD that has a utility that performs it.
