    Seems like there'd be no harm in following the suggestion I made to HHawk in post #10 above just to see if Windows changes its view of the OS disk.

    Word Man, thank you for what you suggested... it now works like a charm! I'm about to defrag my computer now, the first time in at least 3 months!

    As for the connections... I'm not an IT guy, but I'll see if that helps, somehow (will need to turn the computer off and do it manually in order to do that).

    Also, the screenshot... hang on a sec, putting it into an attachment now.

    I now have the same issue (check screenshot) on my PC after running the november Windows 10 (big) update. Not only did it mess up defrag, but also tons of other things. Though I thought I had fixed most, I only discovered the defrag issue a few mins ago.

    I thought MS had fixed the november update? That's why I kept postponing it.

    I already ran the winsat formal command, but still didn't fix anything. I still cannot defrag my SSD partitions. :|

    Any ideas?

    //update 1

    I also tried running defrag /C /O but that resulted in some kind of back-up warning with error 0x8900002A.
    Really lame MS Windows update. (

    //update 2
    Well I managed to fix this by reinstalling my Intel RAID drivers. I use customised raid drivers from another site: Fernando's Win-RAID Forum (Storage Drivers - BIOS Modding). They have tons of RAID drivers and information. Still lame that MS decided to install other drivers though. Oh well problem solved!

    Windows or any other good defrag program will NOT ALLOW you to defrag ANY SSD!!!! Defragging any SSD will shorten its life span. Only thing windows should allow you to do is use the TRIM command, and that's all.

    Mike, HHawk went and used that bad word "defrag" again, eh? Note that the /O switch tells defrag to do the optimization proper for the media type.

    When I run that command for my single SSD, it runs (only) TRIM on both my OS partition and my WinRE partition - that is clear from the output of the command. As long as Windows isn't confused about the media type of the disk, that should be OK.

    Your warning is well taken, however.

    VERY bad term to use when talking about SSD's So......user should know their IS a HUGE difference between these 2 terms.
    Hopefully he does now.

    Obviously I do know the difference. I made a typo, but the typo wasn't the issue here. The issue was that after the Windows update I couldn't 'optimize' my SSD's anymore.

    Anyways, I solved this by reinstalling my RAID drivers with modded ones (for better performance as well).

    Great News!!! Glad you found and fixed your issue, I had to reinstall some of my drivers also after an upgrade.
