    " What a PITA! "..........a very soft expression , I call it a BIG ,stupid mistake !!
    Upgrading to this new version should be cancelled .......untill its been fixed ( if MS ever will fix it .........?)
    I regret my "jump" to this 2004 , only thing I could do ; switching off defrag/trimming ......will trim myself once a month manual !

    That's just it, is it actually doing something even when automatic is turned off, everything suggests that it's actually happening. If it's just reporting wrong then it's not much of a problem but if not .....

    It was originally due to the incorrect scheduling of TRIM and now the improper reporting of TRIM with 2004.
    The actual TRIM and DEFRAG functions are working normally, however.

    This 2004 rollout has been a very bumpy ride and Microsoft knows it.

    AFAIK -

    1) Click on the Start Menu (or go to Defragment and Optimize Drives.)
    2) Start typing Defrag and you'll see an option come up called Defragment and Optimize Drives. Select that.
    3) Make sure the drive you want to turn off defrag/optimize is highlighted and then click on Change Settings.
    4) Uncheck the box that says Run on a schedule.
    5) Click on OK and you're done.

    HTH,

    Is it not safer to set the service "Optimize Drives " from auto to manual (off) .............we can still trim ( optimize) manual !
    By setting this service on "manual" , no wrong will be done on our SSDs ...........and we can still trim them manual..........
