Hello,

If it is possible to detect automatically if Disk is SSD then it would be nice to hide or disable defragmenting on those volumes by default.

Or even manual SSD-list would do, so would not accidently defragment them...

    There is no easy way, since there is no standard that forces the vendors to add the letters SSD to the name of the disk.

    We will see if we can find a way that doesn't bloat our code.

    OK,

    For me, would only need/machine .ini file to or something like that...

    But for general use might not be that good...
