  • Replied in Used printer?
    Yes, disposal when you're through with it. Other than that, if you want to make giant prints this kind of printer is what does it. soloryb
  • If I've offended you by saying you interjected, then I'm sorry. I should know how these forums work by now. Thanks for taking the time to help me with your insights anyway. I'm not here to argue ...
  • Thanks, All my SSDs are either Pro or regular 850s. Your post reminded me to check my version of Magician and there was an update (I had one from 2017 and the new one was from 2018.) After ...
  • Because it worked. I think Defraggler is doing something else other than trim during its SSD optimization. Either that or even with trim enabled, it's not working properly and Defraggler runs its ...
  • I'm really not interested in debating. I'm only concerned with finding out exactly why my system's performance degraded so significantly within a few months, and why Defraggler optimization fixed ...
  • Win 7 64-bit, RAM = 32-GB on my PC. I read the article (https://www.hanselman.com/blog/TheRealAndCompleteStoryDoesWindowsDefragmentYourSSD.aspx) It says that Windows some 'intelligent' defragging ...
  • I think we're past all that, don't you? :) I read the entire article and it says that some 'intelligent' defragging occurs during the course of regularly scheduled optimizations, besides the usual ...
  • Lots of posts on this thread, and I take it that Win 10 is auto-optimizing for you? I know the only way to see what I've been describing is to stop auto-optimizing for a few months to see how ...
  • What is your Windows version? Win 7 doesn't offer optimization but Win 10 does - and it defaults to automatic weekly optimization. If you have Win 10, it may be optimizing your SSDs automatically ...
  • Thanks for the link. Not defragmenting an SSD seems to be a well-established. In my case, I'm using Win 7 and a utility called Defraggler. Defraggler has an option for 'optimizing' each SSD listed ...
  • Optimization is different from defragging. You can and should defrag a regular mechanical dirve. You can also optimize spinner drives. I do this on all my spinners (I have 1 internal and 2 external ...
  • SSD optimization is not the same as defragging. SSDs should not be defragged as this causes a shortening of drive life. I use trim controls on all my SSDs. soloryb
  • I have 3 Samsung SSDs. The boot SSD and the Data SSD are Pro 1 TB and the scratch disk is a regular older 500-GB. All are set using Samsung's Trim commands. You got me thinking; perhaps Sansung's ...
  • I'm not sure exactly what you're trying to say here - either in your first partial paragraph or your second full paragraph. But, you seem to have felt a need to interject yourself so I'll try to ...
  • OK soloryb
  • Read your previous post. I see that you decided not to reprint this part of what you said: "For clarity, meant Windows doesn't constantly defrag (optimize) a SSD drive unless necessary. That these ...
  • Defragging is not the same as optimizing. Spinners can be both defragged and optimized, but SSDs should only be optimized and never defragged. Defragging an SSD can wear out the drive. The ...
  • I know defragging an SSD can shorten its life (warning about this pops up in Defraggler), but you say optimization degrades an SSD. Where did you get this info? Also, I have observed the ...
  • Thanks again, Shows just how much I use Win 10 and that laptop. I'll set it for scheduled optimizations. soloryb
  • Thanks, That sounds great for auto-optimization for Win 10. Win 7. Win 10 just won't install on my 7-year old PC. Tried many times. I also have a laptop (ssd) with Win 10 on it. What is the ap? Sti ...
