Therein lies your problem..Y/./ou probably connected your external after the OS finished installing. Just use your SSD for virtual memory and temp files. The wear factor of SSDs is grossly overexaggerated anyway. A lot of idiots and misinformed people who listened to idiots think that SSDs will wear out prematurely if you leave the default system setup the way it is.. The fact is, if an SSD couldn't run windows for a normal life span, microsoft wouldn't support SSDs.
By the way, the real reason deframentation is disabled when windows 7 is installed to an SSD is because physical location of files on an SSD play absolutely no part in a SSDs seek time, so defragmenting will never be necessary
