Greetings, Last year at Covid, I upgraded my laptop and installed a Crucial 240GB SSD SATA and 4GB Crucial RAM! So, my system used to run well until one day, when I installed Driverbooster, there was a health tool and it was checking my performance and at one point, there was an option to defragment my SSD and I gave permission to do so and then after that, my entire PC kept freezing until I reset it. After doing this, my system ran fine again but after that, my operating system kept freezing intermittently until I reset it. (only C Drive Data – Formatted) now also after all of this my system is freezing but very occasionally and I want a permanent solution, either I will delete my whole data and the PC will be feeling like a new system or I might get a new laptop and throw it out of the window!

Please tell me, What to do? I have checked my SSD Health its 87% according to CrystalDisk and I have also checked there is no error!

I have defraged my 5yr old ssd a couple of times no issues…
Lesson learnt never defrag a ssd as it isn’t much useful. Ssd don’t need a defrag.

Get the SSD replaced under warranty. 3 years is the minimum AFAIK. My Silicon Power SSD was defective from the beginning, used to overheat rather quickly and performance used to absolutely crater. But since it only happened during disk intensive workloads and general performance was just fine I didn’t give it much thought. Later I flashed an unofficial firmware which borked it. The replacement is just supremely better. 


SSDs unlike HDDs don’t need to be defragmented at all as mentioned above.


Could be a driver issue, a Windows 10 update etc.

take backup of whole disk in some other drive using macrium.

that software must have messed up something.

One quick way to determine if it’s any issue with the OS or some update is to boot into any Linux distro like Ubuntu/Linux Mint from a USB drive etc. and check if the issue persists or not.


If it doesn’t then next try a reinstall of Windows. 


Install CrystalDiskInfo and see if it detects any errors or not. If its a retail Samsung drive, SSD Magician? could help as well.
