SO...just to be sure and clear...your laptop has TWO physical storage drives in it, correct? One SSD and one HDD?

Where exactly does it say it is an SSD? What program is telling you that?

How is it telling you you can't defrag it because it's an SSD?
I'm able to defrag my SSD, though I don't.


If you're looking for help, you've gotta give us a bit more info.
The following info would be helpful to know for anyone in the thread.

If you are running Win 7, have you tried to use the native Win 7 defrag utility? That's all I use to defrag my HDDs. It can be used to defrag manually or be set to defrag automatically on a schedule. I have my desktop set to defrag the HDDs once a week in the middle of the night. Before I replaced the HDD in my notebook with a SSD, I manually defragged it, three or four times a year (it doesn't get very heavy usage).
