    SSD Maintenance


    What does everyone do about keeping a SSD at top performance? Found a program called Tweak SSD,does anyone use this?. Are you suppose to defrag a SSD? Thanks for any tips and info on this.

    Me personally i just use trim in Windows 10, i do not let software write and erase large files often, i use a HDD for this. Do not believe there is a need for these third party tweakers.

    Right click the SSD in This PC select Properties then it would be under Tools then Optimize.

    Can schedule it as shown there in Optimization, but i tend to find out the schedule does not work at times. Matters on how you use your SSD, amounts of writes and erases. I maybe once a week to once a month.

    Your welcome, when windows knows you have a SSD it will optimize it in other ways. If have any software programs that write large files a lot use a HDD for it so it keeps the health of the SSD.

    I can trim using the Windows built in trim function or the manufacturer's utility - in my case Intel SSD Toolbox or Samsung Magician for my PCs.

    Which is best to use or doesn't it make any difference?

    Don't use Tweak SSD. It does a lot of unnecessary things, some of which are out-dated with the advancement of SSD technology.

    I just use Window's own defrag tool which trims SSDs.
