Very often we heard people saying that you should disable Windows Defragment and Optimize Drive on a SSD. Should it be disabled?

The feature should be enabled (default). Windows perform the correct action depends on the media type of the storage. If your disk storage is a traditional hard disk drive. Windows would defragment your drive periodically if the service is enabled.

If the disk storage is a Solid State Drive, Windows would not defragment your drive but it would perform TRIM periodically. TRIM operation would marked the deleted space of and SSD to be available for use. So the data inside the SSD is more organized and would increase the drive endurance.
