Windows 7 Defrag
Posted on 2013-11-15
I have recently installed several dozen Windows 7 Pro computers on a domain, all with SSD system drives. From what I have been reading, it is neither necessary nor desirable to run defrag on these drives. By default Windows 7 schedules a defrag weekly, however (also from what I have been reading) Windows 7 will automatically NOT defrag an SSD.
I had started looking into disabling the default defrag schedule via GPO, but perhaps that is not necessary. Can anyone confirm or refute the idea that Windows 7 will reliably avoid running a defrag on an SSD, thus saving me from the task of disabling the default defrag schedule on all of our new clients?
Thanks for the help.
