  • Defrag a Solid State ?

    The following question was in the User Profile Computer Details of member Aki ORR

    All the best, woz of oz
    I use a SAMSUNG 900X + iNTEL i5 CPU, with WINDOWS 7

    It has no disk
    It uses solid state gates instead

    Should I use IOBIT disk operations with it (defrag etc) ?
    Can they damage the solid state storage?

    Thanks for any info

    Solid-State-Drives do Not need to be Defragmented.
    So, Do Not try to.

      just needs to set the "TRIM" command and forget it. no defrags required.

        Hi
        There have been several discussions on this subject in the forum fx. this one:

        But generally one must say that there is not much to be gained by defragging a SSD computer, and it may - if defragging is used often - seriously shorten the lifespan of the SSD.

          The most experienced defragmentation company in existence has just developed an SSD optimization program. If their is not much to gain by defragmenting SSDs I doubt they would've spent the time and money to develop it.

          It's true SSDs don't fragment the same way that HDDs do because they work under entirely different premises but SSDs do have fragmentation like weaknesses that affect them, here's the white paper link:

          SSD Defrag White Paper

          As SSDs become more prevalent and widely used we'll get a truer picture of how they actually behave in real world use. Remember, in the 80s the claim for CDs was that they never skipped —we shortly found out that wasn't true.

              I have read that Windows-7 has an Automatic feature
              that will Not allow defrag of SSDs.
              I've Not tested it though since I don't have any SSDs.

              So if Microsoft says it's Bad, It Must be Bad. :wink:
