    Hi,
    @lx07:

    It is quite accurate on all of my systems though. Guess I'm lucky....

    Cheers,

    I really don't think it really matters but it is certainly a bit mysterious.

    I'm such a compulsive fiddler I'm amazed I didn't run it manually for 17 days. I'm normally much more OCD than that but in my defense I've been working and I must have forgot to be as obsessed as I normally am.

    I'm genuinely curious now what will happen and I'll try really hard not to press the "Optimize" button even though I kind of want to

    Hi,

    Bottom line is, I think, is Window looks at it decides no action is needed but only logs it if it in fact did run the retrim command.

    By not reporting this action it then look as if it has done nothing at all to the end user.

    I'm sure I'm worse than you when it comes to fiddling with my machines.

    Cheers,

    This is uncanny.


    I've just this minute checked and guess what. They optimised yesterday evening. I wasn't aware of anything happening although I could just have been away from the PC at the time. Nothing that doesn't happen on every other day though. And I see all partitions were done. The 'Recovery Drive Z' has static non changing files and so should never need doing.

    How weird is that.

    @Mooly you could see if turning on History in Task Scheduler might eventually give you more insight, if you're interested:

    You guys totally missed the point of why I said it`s good idea to set aside some unallocated space.

    Thanks Cliff (and thanks for your links earlier on )

    Doesn't seem to be anything showing in the scheduler apart from yesterdays auto run. Nothing under 'next run' and no more info if you try and expand anything.

    @Mooly here is an Event Viewer Custom View I just created:

    Optimize Drives Custom View.zip

    Just download it,

    right click and open properties,
    select "Unblock", then ok,
    unzip it,
    then open Event Viewer and import it.

    It will then appear under Custom Views, and show "Retrim" for SSDs or "Defragmentation" for HDDs under the Details\Friendly View tab:

    It will show for when you do it manually and when it is done through Auto Maintenance.
