    optimization not available


    when I set up my windows 8, optimization was available for several days.
    Now the C drive says optimization not available.
    it still shows it as an SSD.
    any ideas?
    thanks

    Go to: Control Panel->Administrative Tools->services

    and make sure you have "Optimize Drives" service running.

    Yes you can see in the picture it is running and recognizes the SSD.
    when I loaded windows 8, the optimize option worked ok for several days, then what you see in the picture.
    I bench test the SSD, it has not lost any speed, very fast in bench just don't have optimize option.
    got any ideas.
    thanks

    Strange, it should be avaiable. In Windows 7 and 8 trim must be active.

    You can try Intel SSD Toolbox. It Works with all Intel SSDs and some other brands (not all).

    http://downloadcenter.intel.com/Deta...&DwnldID=18455

    Try this in CMD prompt as admin:

    To querry TRIM status (0 is activated):
    fsutil behavior query DisableDeleteNotify

    To set it activated:
    fsutil behavior set DisableDeleteNotify 0

    Click image for larger version

    Hi, had the same issue just now. Have you by any change converted your SSD from basic to dynamic disk? if so, deleted volyme, format and you are back to a basic disk. This solved it for me.

    Try with "Scheduled Optimization" OFF.
