    I remember in Windows 8 when you run Winsat, it will change a few settings if for example it detects an SSD and what not according to your system.

    Is it the same in Windows 10?

    What was the command BTW it's been a while...

    Yep, when windows listed a SSD as a HDD and would't give the option to optimize, it was "winsat diskformal". Winsat formal is just like running the old windows experience.

    I just ran this command in admin command prompt:
    winsat formal -v -xml c:\winstatresults.xml.
    in build 10525, the results when opened in excel are huge compared to when run in build 10240 RTM.
