    Windows 7 deactivated defrag for the new SSD, that's OK but defrag has been deactivated for the HDD too, I tried to reactivate it for the HDD using the command line: no way !

    SSD' don't need defrag tools. If anything when you defrag SSD's it wears them down quicker o_O

    You can use something like PerfectDisk to consolidated free space which improves write speeds, but never do a full defrag.

    PerfectDisk uses consolidate free space on SSD's .

    I am begining to realize that after OS and programs are installed, there really isn't any need to defragment. If I download say 200 GBs of data, there will be some fragmentation. However, once the data is transferred and all content related to said data is cleaned, I'm back at square one. No fragmentaion (checked). Back to OS and progz.;)
