Is Defrag Still needed on SSD Drives?

Is Defrag Still needed on SSD Drives?

You should not defragment your SSD to improve SSD performance as it can shorten the life of your SSD Defragmentation is a procedure that minimizes fragmentation in the file system. Defragmentation organizes the storage on your computer by merging files and other data stored on your hard drive. When there is not enough space on your disk to store the entire file in one place, the file is broken down into smaller parts called fragments. Defragmentation reunites the pieces. File systems on electromechanical disk drives benefit from defragmentation, such as on hard disk drives, floppy disk drives, and optical disk media. When reading a fragmented file, the movement of the hard drive's read/write heads over different parts of the disk is slower than accessing the entire contents of a non-fragmented file sequentially without moving the read/write heads in search of additional pieces. Differences between SSDs and HDDs A spinning hard disk is the simplest non-volatile storage in a computer....
