It is advised not to defrag on SSDs and as powerbricksays - it is built into Windows (and has been for a long long time)

Well, since MS-Windows 7 (July 2009) but that doesn't mean it is automatically enabled on (non-"SSD") drives.

But the deal is FOR Windows software, if you're still using XP then you have greater worries than defragging

Err, it's been part of Windows since to beginning. It was originally developed for MS-DOS that early versions of Windows were built on top of.

And yes, it's been scheduled by default on normal windows installs for a long time too.

Err. I know.

it was a different executable before MS-Windows 7. That was my point.

Yes it had a pretty graphic where you could watch each block being "defragged"

I'm not the slightest bit annoyed, what an odd comment. Almost as odd as saying some people don't use Windows. Would you post about some people not drinking wine on a deal about wine?
If anything it seems to me you don't understand how the site works or the point of this thread.

I would if it answers a question somebody posted.

Yeah... sorry for being such a noob but I didn't think this site was just about you & your knowledge.

Users who still uses HDD instead of SS


Social Security? Schutzstaffel?

If I ever wanted to defrag I'd use Defraggler anyway... Still got about 10 TB of junk on HDDs next to the 2 SSDs...
In Windows search just type Defrag and up pops Defrag and Optimise and optimise your SSD and it trimmed.
Even though in Win 10 you set it to optimise every week it seems to forget that and have to manually do it.
No need to defrag an SSD.
If you use a mechanical hard drive and don't want to use the perfectly acceptable built in Windows application then there's also defraggler from the company that brought your CCleaner

I don't think anyone keeps win 2000/2003 for performance reasons. Also, are there any non-windows file systems that need to be defragmented?

"Win 2000/2003"? Do you mean "ME" & "XP"? No, but that doesn't mean they are not still used.

"Yes" to your question.

Thanks for clearing that up. We should have mentioned it hours ago. Silly us.
Auslogics pro version is the Rolls Royce of defraggers. Saying windows has its own defraggers is like comparing a Skoda to a Roller.
All defraggers nowadays have an option to tell the prob if it is ssd. .
I have been through all the flavors of Windows since 95 to 10. For me defraggers have made the computer run faster/better.
If you don't believe it then dont download or install it.
For me the OP, s pro version is worth having. Thanks OP for posting.

OS can't see the difference between SSD and HD.YOU CAN !


1- Much faster
2- it is protected against any physical damage i.e. vibrations or a mechanical shock will stop the HDD unlike SDD.
3- SDD is silent because it consists of a chip stick to a circuit board unlike the HDD which has a lever mechanism.
OS(Operating System) can not see the difference.
HD systems should be defragged for a couple of reasons. On older FAT file systems, files are saved from the start of the disk onwards. If a file is altered and becomes larger then the disk has to find somewhere else to store the "extra" bit. Whenever it subsequently needs to access the file it has to go looking for the "extra" bit which not only takes more time but also increases wear and tear (hard drives are mechanical).

From roughly Windows XP/2000 onwards the NTFS file system was used which saved files in a slightly more intelligent way reducing (though not removing) the need to defrag.

SSD systems operate in a totally different way and should not be defragged.

This applies to Windows systems.

If you use Mac OS you should very rarely need to defrag as a different file system is used and it auto defrags anyway.

As for Linux, why do you think users always have a very smug look about them?
Defrag on Windows 10 will detect if you have an SSD or not and acts accordingly. There's nothing wrong with the built-in defrag tool. Windows 7 has support for SSDs and performs TRIM operations in the background, but the built-in defrag tool can't tell the difference and will defrag an SSD the same way it would do to a HDD (which isn't good).

"Optimising" the drive on Windows 10 simply performs a TRIM operation.

If you know anyone with an old PC that doesn't really want to invest in hardware upgrades but wants an improvement in performance then a defrag does a good job most of the time. Can't count the number of times I've checked PCs at work this month to find that they haven't been defragged since 2011-2014.

You'll want to defrag on HDDs where data is read/written to a lot. Usually if the fragmentation is above 10% then you should run a defrag.
