I have been posting about this in the Storage forums, I used it , worked nice, no negative side effects. I spotted it at OCZ ssd support forums , under the WIN 7 tips and tweaks sub section.

3rd party crapware? LOL. I don't think you fully understand what the little program does and how it benefits your SSD...lol You are probably one of those people who defrag their SSD haha

Windows XP SP3 on atom 1.6 n260 with 1gb ram and a 16gb SSD.

I am getting this error even after a fresh restart.
"The application has failed to initialize properly (0xc0000135)."

Does anyone have any suggestions?

I really need this app because the sandisk 16gb ssd in this machine is the slowest HD I have ever seen.
I opened the netbook and got under the keyboard to the drive and it is just a small pcb with ram on it. I can not even put a normal HD because there is no room and the connector is not standard.

You are missing either .Net Framework (Latest version to be sure) or VCredist. Check those out!

Thank-you for the quick reply it was missing .net Framework.
I thought it was installed but downloading 2.0 fixed the issue.

SSD's don't work like HDDs
They store things in random places specifically to use each flash cell as evenly as possible. Fragmentation does not hurt performance on SSDs.

Defraging only wears out the flash chips faster because of all the pointless reads/writes

This utility is actually over a year old now (but no less useful), if you were following the OCZ forums enough to notice it ;)

Fragmentation does affect performance, and can do so quite severely. But it's not the same as fragmentation on a HDD.

So do you actually notice gains from this thing? I'm running 2 X25's in raid 0, and it's already pretty darn quick. I'll have to try it when I get home.

Any mention if it is aimed towards SLC or MLC SSD drives?

It would be nice to give little more info on what it does; I generally dislike automatic background defragging, so if this tool does these things, then I think I'd not be interested in it.

All it really does is allow you to do Windows tweaks from one location and with a nice GUI rather than registry hacks through regedit.

This totally sucked. I applied using the autotweak button and after that none of the programs worked. I used it on an IBM t60 and luckliy it was a new work laptop with nothing to lose. I had to do a complete restore as system restore would no longer work.
