TOPIC: Protection features - my SSD can't be selected

Protection features - my SSD can't be selected 11 Oct 2017 07:51 #8679

Hello, I can't enable Directory Backup and Trash History on my main SSD. It is grayed and can't be selected. Is this normal?

Also considering that my main drive is an SSD, what other TechTool pro features I should not use?

Directory Backup and Trash History are unavailable for SSDs because when you delete a file on an SSD, TRIM erases the sectors formerly used by the file to prepare those sectors for their next write event. TRIM improves the performance of the drive, but prevents recovery of deleted files.

You should not use the disk optimizer on an SSD, because the drive's firmware will cause the file pieces to be written in such a way as to reduce wear to the drive, rather than causing the new file to be in only one piece. Please see: Wear Leveling - Wikipedia.
