Windows 10: Permanently disable disc defragmenter

    Permanently disable disc defragmenter


    I have a SSD installed, but with every major Windows update, I find that disc defreg schedule has been turned back on by the update.

    One day i will forget to check! Is there a way to permanently disable it?

    It is not defragging the SSD - it s doing TRIM. This is needed to keep SSD in good condition.

    Thanks cereberus, that I did not know!
    I will turn defrag on again! I seemed to assume TRIM was always working in the background, not a specific item. Mind you, it does actually say Optimise not Defragment!
    Thanks again!

    PS. Is this also true for Windows 7, which does call it Defragment not Optimise?

    You mean turn optimise on, not defrag!

    Yeah - just that W7 was out before SSDs were common, so the screens are not that clear, but still TRIMS iirc.
