    SSD & Defrag: What is shrink estimation?


    Hello to all, newbie here.
    I enabled the scheduled optimization on my ssd (samsung 850EVO 250Gb) and after about a week in the event viewer-> windows logs-> application there is an event id 258 where it says that "the storage optimizer successfully completed shrink estimation on (C".
    What is shrink estimation? Has something to do with defrag or trim operation? Windows 8.1 correctly identify my drive as ssd.
