This is all you need to know basically. Windows 7 won't defrag an SSD unless YOU force it to. Even then, it won't brick it....it just isn't needed.

I think by default Windows 7 turns on defragging on HDD's and schedules it to run every Wednesday. If it detects a SSD, it won't run it. Or that's the experience I've had with several different machines.

Well I didn't know that KB as I have always gone by this Disk Defragmenter - Open and Use
