Turn off defrag of SSD in Windows 8.1 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Greetings,

       After applying my Windows 8.1 Update 1 OS image to a tablet, I noticed that it has set the defragmenter to automatically defrag my SSD. This is an appalling default and Im very surprised MS hasnt fixed it.

      Does anyone know a registry hack or something that I can do in my task sequence to turn of all automatic defragmenting in Windows 8.1 permanently please?

    Thanks

  • This is not something you have to worry about. The defrag task will recognize that this is an SSD and exit.

    It would be nicer if it just "unchecked" the box next to the drive so that it doesnt give us a false impression.
