  1. Hello; In Defraggler I have a SSD that is being detected as a HDD. I believe this is because of the Intel Smart Response/ Intel Rapid Storage / Intel Rapid Start technologies present on my system. Before I made these changes Defraggler was able to correctly identify this SSD as a SSD. The way the system is configured is with the SSD and HDD in a simple raid array (it would function as a spanning array; as in the data is temporary located on the SSD before moving onto the HDD). The SSD uses a 64gb partition to accelerate the associated 500gb HDD to support Smart Response. A 16gb partition on the SSD is used as a Hibernation Volume to support Rapid Start. A 175gb partition (this is detected as a HDD instead of the SSD) has the operating system and such on it. And finally there are a few partitions summing up to ~1gb to support the UEFI system. To sum that up in a Defraggler view: Drive | Media Type | Capacity | Notes SSD (C:) | HDD (NTFS) | 158.0 GB | This should be detected as a SSD. It is a partition fully housed on a SSD. HHD (D:) | HDD (NTFS) | 465.8 GB | This is correct. RDD (R:) | HDD (NTFS) | 2.0 GB | This is actually a RAM Drive linked to folders on the SSD. Recovery | HDD (NTFS) | 300.0 MB | This is actually a partition on the SSD used by Windows / UEFI. So; is there a way to 'force' Defraggler into treating these volumes correctly? With them not being classified as SSDs I am unable to use the Optimize Function; and of course it tries to defrag them as it would a HDD which will lower the drive's life. Thank you in advance!
