Windows 7: Remove C and System reserved from Defrag

Back to what I was saying though, there's no way to get it off of that screen is there?

The main reason I ask is because I open defrag to check what's fragmented. I don't use a set schedule. Then seeing something fragmented, I want to defrag it. Not used to having an SSD considering it's my first. I'll have to try to get used to it and hope I don't defrag.

If you have an SSD and no other drive, I guess you will have to try to restrain your inclination to open defrag since the fragmentation level doesn't matter.

If you do have another drive, you'll have to deal with the SSD sitting there, glaring at you, begging to be defragged.

Lol, I have my SSD and a tb hard drive. So I'll have to deal with it glaring at me. If I don't hit analyze by accident, then I should be fine.

Analyzing is harmless as far as I know.

And defragging isn't going to ruin it as far as I know.

I've seen in multiple places that defragging can reduce the life of the SSD.

That's right---if you do it repeatedly.

So can writing to it.

Not only can, but will. The question is how much.

I have not seen anything that says how much a single defrag hurts. So if you can't control yourself and do defrag it, I suspect the SSD will still work.

Much of the "damage" of defragging an SSD is mostly a myth than a reality. It of course causes it to wear off a little, as well as defragging a regular hard disk, and as well as a regular use of an SSD. If you don't tempt yourself too much there should be no problem. Many of the benefits of defragging are meaningless by the nature of SSDs, but I would consider it anyway because it helps with a possible data restoration in case of accidental deletions.
