Defrag hybrid drive?
location: winsecrets.com - date: May 17, 2013
My new machine has a hybrid drive: 500 gig platter with 32-gig solid state. It puts frequently-used files, such as those used at startup on the solid state part. (It boots up very quickly!) Do I need to defrag it? Will I harm it if I try to defrag it? Specifically, Belarc Advisor says my hard drive is this: ST500LX003-1AC15G [Hard drive] (500.11 GB) -- drive 0, s/n W200SM7H, rev DEM4, SMART Status: Healthy

I just bought a Seagate ST750LX003 Momentus XT 750 GB as the new primary drive for my gaming laptop, and I'm wondering how to defrag them, and whether it is safe. I wanted the best of both worlds (space and speed) so I went for the middle ground. What is the difference between a regular HDD, SSHD, and a SSD? Do I just let Windows perform its' normal defrag routine as I normally would, or do I need to download some kind of proprietary software from Seagate that will do it? I like to use 3rd party software (UltimateDefrag) for my defrag operations, is all. And how much can I fill it up before it starts to slow down? I ask because I've heard that you cant fill an SSD up past around 50 to 60% or so before it slowly starts to degrade, s

I cannot defragment my hard drive because I need 15% free space and only have 12%. This is a Dell Dimension 2300, about 10 years old. I have run the Disk Cleanup and deleted everything I can think of, and moved large files to an external hard drive. When I go to Add/Remove programs I see things that are taking up a lot of space, but I'm not sure what I can delete. Can I remove older Service Pack updates or do they all have to stay? What else can I do? HELP!

I purchased an HP laptop, Windows 7, 64 bit which has a hybrid hard drive. I've tried all the common free cloning programs, Macrium Reflect, Paragon, Easeus, but none support hybrid drive that I can find. Before shelling out $$ for non-free cloning programs that may not work, does anyone know of a cloning program that will definitely work to clone the hybrid drives? Doug

Did I miss something? I always thought defrags made more space on your computer by organizing files and making programs run faster But when I did a defrag, using Defraggler I went from 83 gigs free space to 79 gigs free space I even restarted, and nothing changed I think that's kinda weird . Or maybe I don't know something about defragging, and its suppose to do that I hope someone can explain, thank you
