There are problems that are quickly resolved by Microsoft when they are detected, especially through updates to Windows 10. However, there are others that insist on persisting. That said, after the release of two more feature-centric and cumulative updates, Microsoft has yet to fix a bug that causes Windows Defrag to perform TRIM operation on non-SSD drives. This operation is very useful for SSDs. This is because it contributes to the performance and durability of these drives. In practice, it is a command with which the operating system can inform the SSD about data blocks that are no longer needed. So they can be excluded. Or marked as free. In this way they can be rewritten.
Windows 10: there is a problem that updates don’t solve!
In May 2020, Microsoft released Windows 10 2004, that is, the May 2020 update, and introduced two bugs that caused SSDs to be defragmented very often and TRIM operation to be attempted on non-SSD drives.
More specifically, the first bug caused the automatic maintenance functionality in Windows 10 to not remember the last optimization. This was when the computer was restarted. Thus, this forgetfulness caused the drives, including SSD drives, to be defragmented very frequently.
In September, Microsoft released the update “2020-08 Cumulative Update Preview for Windows 10 Version 2004 (KB4571744)”, which fixed the automatic maintenance bug that caused SSDs to be defragmented very frequently.
On the other hand, the second bug caused the TRIM command to be carried out. This on non-SSD drives. Although this does not damage the unit, it generates registration errors.
Today, almost six months later, Microsoft has not yet solved this bug, as the Bleeping Computer website says.
Microsoft has not yet officially recognized that this problem exists.
