I am wrapping up my new build and am having problems operating the Windows 7 disk defragmentation. I have a Samsung 830 SSD boot drive, RAID 0 using 2 WD Velociraptors (scratch) and a 2gb Hitachi Drive (storage) using an Asus P9X79 pro motherboard. Using Samsung Magician software I disabled defrag for the SSD. Now I cannot access windows 7 disk degragment menus in control panel to either manually defrag the spinner drives or set up an automatic defrag time for the non ssd drives. I believe the ability to defrag the non SSD drives is important for performance. Is there anything that I can do to enable Windows 7 disk defragment for the non-SSD drives? Should I consider a third party disk defrag?
Using Samsung Magician software I disabled defrag for the SSD.
This should not have been necessary. Windows 7 will by default not defragment SSDs.
I wonder if that utility has caused your issue, and if you can reverse it.
Thanks for the tip. I disabled the Samsung Magician Utility impacting defragmentation and windows 7 defrag works as it should enabling automatic and manual defrag for non ssd drives.
