Microsoft do indeed make software and operating systems, and I'm very happy to not defrag a solid state drive due to the damage that would be caused by defragmentation, but how can I establish if I have a Solid State drive?
I've held back defragmenting my computer until I can be absolutely sure that my computer is a standard hard drive, which I've not been able to establish due to a lack of information available upon my research. I've looked up my model, but found nothing conclusive to determine either way which type of drive it is.
My original intention to use a registry cleaner, which I now won't use on this new computer, to avoid putting it at risk of accidentally removing required registry keys, was to ensure that the increasing number of tracks left behind after my opening, closing and editing of documents, surfing the web, installing and uninstalling documents, etc didn't clutter up my computer to the point where navigation is heavily slowed down, as happened with my previous computer due to unneeded files accumulating over time that increasingly scattered around my computer.
