    Hi,
    Yeah I turned off optimize drives, no need it's not tough to do once a month or so.
    Windows 10 will do it anyway or even the SSD, after a period of time.
    What SSD do you have, as I have a trick for new gen SSD's.

    What SSD make/model do you have? Then I can answer your question.

    Thanks.

    Let W10 handle it. There will not be any issues.
    The current problem is a reporting error. It will be corrected by Microsoft.

    It is not performing a defrag on the SSD.

    How old is the drive?

    Hmm...

    I would force the TRIM under Defagment and Optimize Drives once and let it be for now.
    Remove any scheduling.

    Alternatively, you can reboot your system up to the BIOS and let it stay that way for 30 minutes.
    If the SSD had an automated garbage collection routine built-in, the controller will sense no writes and invoke the TRIM.

    Then restart normally.

    Will letting it sit untouched at the Boot Menu (assuming one is used) for 30 minutes accomplish the same thing? Wiggle the mouse a bit to stop the timer, then sit for the prescribed time?

    The important thing is not to boot so far as to create disk activity.
    Practically all of the newer generation of SSD's (past 3 years) have this capacity.

    I think for mechanical hard drives is absurd to defrag when fragmentation is below 15-20%
