    Will defraging my new SSD destroy it? OCZ veretex2 60gb

    It really bothers me to know there is 6% fragmentation:(.

    Thanks for the encouragement and info to get the drive.

    The new found speed really is a revelation:D.

    SSDs don't need to be defragged, and defragging the drive will shorten it's life span without providing a performance boost. Windows 7 has excellent support for SSDs, older OS don't offer the same level of support.

    Do not defrag an SSD. You only defrag mechanical hard drives to speed access to files and minimize head movement. There are no heads in an SSD, and time to access files is almost completely independent of where the files are on the SSD, or how scattered they are. Further, the number of write cycles on an SSD is limited so defragging is just wasting device life for no good purpose..
