I recently had some trouble with my computer, so I spent a whole week in front of it, trying to get it in working condition again. The problems were SEEMINGLY unrelated and random, but it was like you had to fight with almost every single program that you install on your computer to get em working again.
Anyways, after a whole week's of battle , it seems that I have finally won (hopefully) but during that week I had to do a FRESH REINSTALL of windows at least 4 TIMES.
And after each single process of FORMATTING-REINSTALLING (never reinstalled a fresh windows without completly formatting all the disk drives first)
......now it seems that my disks are working slower.
Despite it being a fresh and fully updated version of windows (yeah, really, windows update and all the updates for my computer Components such as Gfx, soundcard, DirectX ETC are there)
windows starts kinda slower than ever (althogh still not that bad, just slower than usualy, ''not actually slow'' BUT THE GAMES ALSO SEEM TO BE TAKING LONGER THAN USUAL TO LOAD, and this once is actually noticable with most any games I tried now.
PLUS, some programs take longer to initialize than what they used to, despite it being a fresh and updated install of windows.
SO I thought of defragmenting my disks to make it faster, even if doesnt help, it cant hurt, right?
But OOOOPS! My system is installed on the C: drive, which unsurprisingly also happens to be an SSD drive,
and after GOOGLing it, it appears that defragmenting that SSD drive is not only NOT RECOMMENDED, but also even can be dangerous to my SSD.
So, I ask you guys, should I defragment my SSD? IF NOT, what other alternatives are there to defragmenting an SSD (WITHOUT this leading me to reinstalling windows one more time) ?
Thank you for any possible kind of advice,
PS! Here are my system specs:
x2 Geforce GTX 690 (4 old 680 cards in total)
Asus Xonar Phoebus Soundcard
3 TB Harddisk
