Re: Solid state drives and defragmenting

Hi Carlos & Joseph,
 
This brings up a question I've been meaning to ask about Auslogics.  I have several external drives that I defrag from time to time.  They are 2 TB & 4 TB in size, & are regular spinning disk drives, not SSD.  When I defrag these drives, would it be better to use the Auslogics Disk Defragmenting tool, or just use the Windows7 defragmenting tool?  Also, do either of you use the paid for bersion of Auslogics?  If so, what do you think about it, & is the latest version accessible with Jaws?  Thank you very much for any & all input.
Take care.
Mike

Hi,

Hmmm, SSD’s should not use traditional defrag, as it can make SSD’s fail faster (they use trim to learn which data is no longer needed).

Cheers,

Joseph

Supposedly Auslogics Disk Defrag uses special algorithms for solid state drives so it is probably safe.
