Defragmentation problem fixed

Windows 10 KB4571744 also fixes an alleged issue that could
defrag your SSDs too often.

As we reported recently, a
bug in Windows 10 May 2020 Update broke the Defrag utility
app, which decided to defrag your SSDs little too often,
potentially affecting the lifespan of your storage device.

Windows 10 Drive Optimizer

Normally, the app will optimize (defrag) SDDs on a default
schedule (once a month) or one set by the user, which improves
the performance of the drive. However, after Windows 10 2004
update, Defrag tool can end up optimizing your drives on every
reboot, which could significantly shorten the lifespan of SSDs.

Windows 10 Build 19041.488

Fortunately, Windows 10 patch addresses both the defrag issue
and incorrect reporting bug in Drive Optimize tool.

As we noted above, this is an optional update and it won’t
install on your device automatically. If you skip it, you’ll
still get everything that’s mentioned here in the next week’s
Patch Tuesday update.
