Windows 10: What does Drive Optimization mean? Solved

    What does Drive Optimization mean?

    I noticed under Drive Tools that both my drives are scheduled for Weekly Drive Optimization.

    I have a SSD, C:\, and a HDD, D:\.

    Defrag is not recommended for SSD's, but Drive Optimization isn't Defined.

    Does anybody know what Drive Optimization means in Win 10?

    This is Microsoft's definition of Drive Optimization, from a Win 8 page:

    One of the best ways you can improve your PC's performance is by optimizing the drive. Windows includes features to help optimize the different types of drives that PCs use today. No matter which type of drive your PC uses, Windows automatically chooses the optimization that's right for your drive.Be default, Optimize Drives, previously called Disk Defragmenter, runs automatically on a weekly schedule. But you can also optimize drives on your PC manually.

    The question is, will Win 10 Defrag my SSD?
    The approve statement says Windows will do what's best for the Drive Type.

    Hello Bill,

    Optimize Drives will only defrag a HDD, and only TRIM a SSD. :)
