In this video tutorial I show you how to turn off Disk Defragmentation for SSD's - Solid State Drives in a computer running Windows 7.

If you do have an Solid State Drive in your computer, it is important to make sure that it is not "defragged" - SSD's don't need to be defragged like Hard Disc Drives. If they are regularly defragmented like a standard HDD - Hard Disc Drive, then you can dramatically shorten the life of the drive which would be a very bad thing.

There is an alternate method that can be used to keep your SSD in mint condition. You can use a Third Party piece of software like System Mechanic, which has a dedicated optimization tool that will look after your SSD. I highly recommend System Mechanic as one of the best programs you can use to keep your computer clean and running in mint condition for the life of your machine.

*Please Note*

Since making this tutorial, newer versions of Windows 7 now ignore any Solid State Drives "SSD" on your system. They are not defragmented by default.
