For me, the Windows built-in defrag does the job. I don't need another tool...
When I was using Windows 7, JK Defrag was my favorite, tremendously simple and equally effective.Mydefrag is old school, but it's one of the best you can get for free that does some good optimizations.
That is not true.Do not defrag an SSD unless you want to throw it in the garbage soon...
I don't think third party software can "improve" disk performance .It does, and since Vista, it automatically runs a defrag weekly. However, some of the third party alternatives have more options, and in some cases they can improve disk performance more than Microsoft's defrag too. I say in some cases, because Microsoft's own defrag software works very well, and benchmarks show better performance from it than some of the alternatives.
Never ever defrag SSDFor a SSD...what is the current consensus....to defrag or no?
Explain why please? Windows defrag will defrag your SSD once a month with following conditions met.I don't think third party software can "improve" disk performance .

They can. Just take a look a the following link.I don't think third party software can "improve" disk performance .
You can defrag SSDs. Despite what you hear, it won't kill them, as they don't have a limited life. My main SSD is a cheap Chinese brand, and I've written over 33TB of data to it so far.Never ever defrag SSD
I don't hear anything.My SSD tool Samsung Magician Disabled Windows Defrag ( I use a Samsung Evo 850 ).They can. Just take a look a the following link.

The SSD Endurance Experiment: Two freaking petabytes
However, there is not much point doing so, as you will get very little improvement in speed, unlike defragmenting a heavily fragmented hard drive.
It is a very common misconception that defragging a SSD will cause it to die, or at least greatly shorten its life. This is based on the belief that SSDs can only handle a limited number of writes. However, this has been proven not to be the case, and SSDs should actually last much longer than hard drives.So I think Samsung knows better than me. You don't think so ?
