That is definitely true when you make a fresh install on the SSD. The installer will turn defrag off. But I am not sure whether that would apply when you move the OS with an image to the SSD. I never checked that.
I can verify that i had to turn off Defrag after moving the Imaged OS.

I used Paragon Migrate a few days ago and the answer is No, it does not turn off Defragment to the SSD. It does, list it 1st in the order to defrag.

I turned off the scheduled defragment option.
Yeah, that's what I always did when I migrated an OS from the HDD. But there are many ways to migrate. Maybe e.g. the Paragon Migration tool turns it off. I usually do it the 'manual' way.

Whilst you are at it, get the little 100MB partition too (I believe it's 'G'). I would not reformat but delete the partitions and the volumes in Disk Management and when you have the unallocated space (H and G together), then you can create a new simple partition from that. Just keep right clicking on the partitions/freespace/unallocated space and you will see.

I think the 840 vs 840 pro decision's been made. But I went for the pro based on specs & warranty. It cost an extra $48 which I thought I'd soon forget. Would you really notice a performance difference in day to day use - who knows.
