Should this program be regularly scanning the ‘surface’ of my SSD?

The Surface Scan test reads blocks of data from the device. The memory cells in SSD drives can become defective, just as the ones in USB memory sticks, and CF and SD cards used in cameras can. The name of the test is no longer an apt description for all of the devices it tests, but the test itself is still needed.

Do not use a disk optimizer on SSD drives.
