Other posts provided links but I still have not seen anything authoritative.

Following, still not authoritative, seems to follow what other even less authoritative sources say. And at least the post date is more recent.

https://www.pcmag.com/how-to/how-to-defrag-your-hard-drive-in-windows-10[^]

That link, and others, state that a SSD should not be 'defragged'. But rather it is 'trimmed'. And that is what that process does.

As noted in my other post, my windows 10 computer does NOT have the stated process enabled. I didn't turn it off. And I think I remember installing Windows 10 directly (I remember because I was annoyed that it didn't come installed out of the box.)

But I can't find anything that suggests whether the default is turned on or off.
