Disabling auto Tune-up or excluding a drive from defragmentation in OC RRS feed

  • Question

  • what if we NEED to disable automatic tune-up, or at least specify certain drives one care will not defrag but will still scan. I have an SSD which I do not want defragmented because of the negative effects it has on its life, is there anything I can do?

  • Don't feel stupid. I have the link saved as it is a common question, but since it isn't a supported solution, I don't feel that it should be a sticky in the forum. :-)
