Default Vista and scheduled disk defrag - 10-26-2008, 01:52 PM

hi all, first post

while i was reading the thread at hardware issues, i read that ssd's aren't supposed to be defragged. well...in vista, default installs all come with a defrag scheduled. think it might be best to disable defrag altogether?

Big time "yes".

Defragmenting an SSD works against it's built-in wear-leveling and can do harm over time.
