Should the system on Windows 8.1 try to optimise a solid state drive?
Hope this helps, Gerry

This issue could be caused if Defragment take operation on SSD. And as we know SSD cannot be defragged.
I just want to mention that the above statement is not accurate as written.
The general wisdom is that one SHOULD not defrag an SSD.  That's different than "cannot".
A file system indeed can be defragmented on any drive, including an SSD, though common wisdom is that the payback in performance to doing so is negligible, so doing a defragment operation just wears out the flash memory without any
real benefit.
Defragmenting the file system can ensure the data is read using fewer low level operations - i.e., a big block of data can be read in one contiguous chunk instead of several smaller chunks.  Even as efficient as the most modern SSDs are, with near-zero
seek time, it DOES take some time for the operating system to prepare SATA commands and get them out to the drive across whatever busses and controllers are in place.
The difference in file system performance between a fragmented file system and a defragmented one can literally be hundreds of megabytes per second or even gigabytes per second when RAID is involved and the SATA link isn't a bottleneck.  I
call your attention to the ATTO benchmark, which measures performance at various read sizes.
Therefore there is some current debate on whether an occasional (e.g., once a year) defrag on an SSD can optimize performance enough that it could actually be a good thing to do.
That said, with Windows 8 I'm not sure Microsoft's tools can actually be coaxed into doing a defrag on a (properly recognized) SSD.  It was possible in Windows 7.
