    Recently, I've noticed that my SSD is not getting trimmed on the same schedule as my HDD is defragged. I have my OS on an SSD and data on a HDD in my laptop and the defrag schedule set to weekly.



    I have seen the same thing on my SSD. The small data section got trimmed on a weekly schedule with the HDD, however; the OS section of the SSD showed last trim action was over 3 weeks ago. What is your winver? I have 1809, same as OP.

    It appears that the OS section on an SSD is not being trimmed on schedule. Odd!
    I am on latest 1903 (18362-356).

    Same here. Windows is scheduled to optimize SSD weekly, it does not. After 28 days it reports that optimization is required, I do it manually.

    I have all my personal folders remapped to my data HDD, so I'm not too concerned about infrequent trim on my OS drive. I'll just have to check it monthly.

    I am curious though, on your SSD with partitions, was the area without the OS trimmed on the weekly schedule?
    As a rule, only partitions with drive letters assigned can be trimmed, or for an HDD, defragged. So partitions such as the EFI, Recovery, etc. and any unallocated space will not be. Scheduled or manually.

    So under drives in the optimize settings, if we remove the small partition from optimize, then it should work?
    I can't even see needing that small partition trimmed.

    Edit, nevermind I don't see the health (small partition listed).
    I do have a \\?\volume (5d792244-0e49-11e6-b58f-806e6f6e6963)\
    Don't know size of that one.

    Well, the CU theory is sort of blown. This system has had a CU on 9/24/19 since I noticed the optimization schedule being turned off and it's still on. Maybe it only happens on B cycle updates. Still checking every day to see what happens.

    IMO -

    Microsoft should rename "Defragment and Optimize Drives" to "Optimize Drives."

    Now, take a look at this, if you really want to blow your mind... SMR...

    @Compumind: thanks for the pointer. Yet another good reason to make sure you always have a backup! Interesting info.
