Windows 7 and SSD Defragmenation

    General discussion

  • There appears to be some confusion over this issue.

    Windows7 is SSD aware which disables SSD's from automatic defragment schedule

    Anyone who is unsure their SSD has been detected properly and think it may still be scheduled for defragmentation can check here for confirmation.  All programs >> Accessories >> System Tools >> Disk Defragmenter >> (if not enabled check "turn on schedule" temporarily..) >> then check Run on a schedule >> then select disks button:  look under (Select all Disks) listed here you will find any disks not excluded for defrag or you can select the (Select all Disks) check box.  If SSD's have been detected they will be excluded and removed from listing under (Select all Disks).

    Both these screenshots indicate and confirm all SSDs on each system have been detected correctly and have been excluded from the Disk Defragmenter schedule.

     

    No System SSD's listed under (Select all Disks) is the indication SSD detection has been successful

    Disk Defragmenter schedule 1

     

    The absence of system SSD's listed under (Select all Disks) is the indication SSD detection has been successful

    Disk Defragmenter schedule 2

     

    Correct SSD detection will not prevent any user from manually initiating a defrag on any SSD volume, SSD users beware!
