    O.k. if talking about an SSD only need to drop the word defrag. How are you defragging files only ? And you mean get 50% fragmented in less then a week or no?
    I used a Defraggler from Piriform.com.

    For the full scoop:

    The real and complete story - Does Windows defragment your SSD? - Scott Hanselman

    SSD's do get defragged once a month if System Restore Points are enabled (volsnap). Defragmentation can be very important as SSDs run out of pointer space if files are created and deleted a lot.

    The article is long, but it basically says there is no need to run your own "defrag/optimization". Let the system do it properly.
    tl;dr. I read several articles like that before, hence my philosophy of do it only when it needs it, period.

    I have a small exe file for Win7 that verified trim was enabled and working, I won't post anything .exe but the name of it is trimcheck-0.6, here's a link to the page Index of /trimcheck
    I somehow got a copy of SSDLife Pro, prolly the same as Trimcheck.

    I have mine scheduled to run daily (optimize SSD) but just checked and it has not run in 8 days. So how is this fixed to have it run? Seems the only way to have it run it to do it manually. Attachment 31259
    It is still not running even tho it is scheduled. Showing that its been 19 days since it ran now. Still set up for daily too.

    I havebeen fortunate as I haven't noticed a drop in performance with my 850 evo 256gb at all?
    Truly I do like Windows 10 and I am sure eventually it will suit me right down to the ground.

    Seems to have been an issue even in Windows 8.1, mine is set weekly (default setting) does the same thing.For now just keep tabs on it do it according to how much you write and erase, as daily is too often anyway.

    I agree but if scheduling does not work what else does not work?

    Good question, meaning think Trim might not work or what else does not work on OS ?

    Re SSD management


    A little off topic

    but as I have just bought an SSD for my laptop, and done a fair bit of research....thought I would share this..

    If the SSD is underperforming or just been added try the program in this link and if alignment is off there is a free program to realign it.

    good luck

    How to: Properly re-align your SSD/HDD partitions

    Hi,

    There's a lot of urban myth on defragmenting spinners and aging them just as there seems to be a lot of confusion floating about on how to properly maintain SSDs.

    For spinners, the best defragmenting program is the one that makes sure your drive doesn't get fragmented in the first place and does not require user interference.
    Not sure if there's a W10 version available but either way, this level of programming does not come cheap.
    It will however, contrary to popular belief, make your spinner last longer and it will definitely run faster.

    For SSD, of course these get fragmented too but the bottom line is that it really doesn't matter as the read/write latency is so short it's doubtful anyone notices the difference in practice.
    Furthermore, actually defragmenting this will reduce its lifetime although nowadays their lifetime is likely to surpass any spinner.

    Trim does not defragment anything, it just flags cells as being available for writing again.

    Worried about fragmentation of your drive? Image it and restore it subsequently. It will be defragmented automagically.

    Cheers,

    Hi,
    @Reddwarf4ever, did you run into a misalignment problem BTW ?

    Note also that most (if not all) of the current manufacture SSD don't require over-provisioning as the earlier ones did from the SATA II era or thereabouts.
    Although I confess I never really bothered with that either. It can only become a problem once your drive runs out out of cells to write to. IOW, filled to the nook.

    Cheers,
