  1. Can someone tell me what is the difference between using the built in Windows 10 SSD Optimisation versus Defraggler SSD Optimisation? I used Defragger often with my pre Windows 10 PC's using standard HDDs. I now use a 1TB SSD, a 500GB SSD and a 2TB HDD (for archives only). For now I have resisted using Defraggler on my Windows 10 computer as the general consensus is to not defrag and limit optimisation for longer SSD life (yes I do backups, three times per week). After a chat with a friend who said they got some overall performance gain using the Defraggler SSD optimiser over the Windows 10 system, I decided to take a look at it for myself. I installed Defragger today just to see what differences exist (I have not yet used it), there certainly appears to be different optimisation results between them. Windows 10 reports that optimisation is up to date on both SSDs but Defraggler appears to want to optimise further. My system auto optimises via the built in optimiser weekly which is what I have read to leave it at. Is this still the best option?. Is the usage of SSDs slowly killing off the usefulness of Defragger? Especially as more and more people opt for SSDs instead of standard HDD?
  2. Hi guys, as per the image below Speccy is reporting the wrong cache amount on my HDD, they show as 16Mb when in fact they are 32Mb for the first one and 64MBs for the second two. Is this a Speccy issue of something in my settings of my PC that are causing this wrong value to be displayed? Thanks GW
