    I really wonder what those shady defragger serving companies mean with slogans like "Improved SSD Optimize and Quick Optimize."....
    How do you optimize an SSD by defragging o_Oo_Oo_O??

    @DOSawaits It's not actually a defrag that is done, why is why it is called Optimize. The general purpose of such functions, I believe, is to increase write speeds. However, due to speed of SSDs, the increase in speed is not going to be significant.

    A quick Google search revelead that there are some people who have had serious problems after using the SSD Optimize function in Defraggler.

    There is nothing shady, they documented what they do (I won't comment on the effectiveness though)
