List of current issues
Disk scheduler optimization failed to run.
Steps taken, but have been unsuccessful?
none
I set scheduler disk optimization to weekly. It is 7 days now, and the scheduler haven't run yet. The last manually run on all my drives is 7/19/2018. Is it not working?

Task Sheduler service is running automatically.

I think you do use SSD... Can it be the problem?
Even my HDDs haven't optimized for 8 days now.
@SumTingWong , it's possible that when windows started the task it determined that optimization was unnecessary and I see @yitworths just asked a good question also.
How can I check that Windows did started this task? I don't see nowhere in the Task Scheduler. Disk Scheduler optimization will defrag or optimize the selected disk whether it is need or not when it is enable and choose the time( daily, weekly, or monthly). I even allow it to wake up my computer as well.

Could this be the solution?

But when I check Defragment and Optimize Drives, it show the last manual run is last week. I installed and uninstalled a lot of apps in this week.

are you suspecting any bug?

How come you jump to that conclusion. If your disk doesn't need any defrag or optimization, it's most likely that windows won't do anything even if it's schduled to. For defragmentation, it analyzes first so if there is any thresold & your disk doesn't meet that then windows ain't gonna do any defragment.

There's no analyze button for my SSD. I just check that it is already automatically run today, but the process terminated unexpectedly?

Is it only work in idle?
no, not really. But, the termination could be because of several reasons. But to pinpoint d real reason is difficult. Anyhow, 8 days or 7 days gap can be considered normal,if your disk is in good condition. Can you try a manual start of that process just to check?

Manual defrag my HDD and optmize my SSD through Optimize and Defrag Drive?

Yes, right now I am defragging my two HDDs that the automatic disk scheduler didn't do. The automatic disk scheduler didn't even start at all. My HDDs need defrag.
after defragmentation, run either sfc /verifyonly or sfc /scannow. or, run DISM.exe /Online /Cleanup-image /Scanhealth DISM.exe/Online/Cleanup-image /Restorehealth

If still the scheduled task fail, there can be either an another program interferring with it or a possible bug.
