First of all my computer skills are just average. I got Windows 8  64 bit laptop. With an SSD hard drive. I researched it a lot. To my understanding never run a disk defragmenter on an SSD. I get that very well, and don't. Is there something I need to do on a SSD? Or just leave it be. Thanks, Chuck

What kind of drive is it (brand). There are usually software tools that come with the computer for the drive or that you can download from the manufacturer that can give you some additional options to optimize performance and basic maintenance. 

 

My Samsung EVO 840 pro (1TB SSD) has great options to increase performance, automatically update firmware and performance tuners.

My computer skills are just average. I have Speccy and according to it ( Sata SSD ) it was already in this computer when I got it around 5 to 6 months ago. I have Acer Aspire Windows 8  64  bit S3-391 laptop is there an alternative to defrag on SSD? Or should I not do anything? Thanks, Chuck

Do NOT defrag any SSD...why are you stuck on that question?

Defragging isn't even the most important basic maintenance task, running the chkdsk /r command is far more useful.

FWIW:  I have both of my O/Ses on a SSD...I run chkdsk /r routinely on each, I see no negative impact at all.
