    I hope its more reliable than the auto optimize that does not work.

    Microsoft OS, Microsoft rules.
    You have just to simply obey and your day will be just fine.

    I'm testing 20226. I wanted to test how it responded on older nvme drives and one I know is bad. During setup if you install an unrecognized drive it disables by default. If not, you can just turn it off in settings like most things. Or, you can migrate over to the latest Ubuntu or Mint distro and trust whoever compiled in their basement only had the best intentions.

    What exactly do you think the auto optimize does? Last I checked, all it's supposed to do is TRIM your SSD when there's low disk activity, which isn't really going to have much of a performance impact.

    Arguably, MS has the best intentions too. The difference is we don't really know what those intentions are because we can't see the code or what else they may be doing with the information. The nice thing about Linux is if you don't trust whoever compiled the kernel or drivers, you can do it yourself.

    any reason this has to be exclusive to NVMe? Why not SATA SSDs?

    SATA devices are already supported. Proof: attach a damage disk to the system and have a loock ad the event viewer.

    Yes but when my os says it will optimize(trim) my drives on a weekly basis but fails to do so.....then there is an issue with the software and given that win10 wont allow any other the software the privilege to override win10 then again there is an issue.

    The saddest thing in this thread are the stupid OS wars, and people not knowing that drives actually report their status to the OS kernel anyway.

    Good move by Microsoft, they should also make SMART monitoring of other types of drives more visible to the end users, instead of burying the alerts in Event Viewer.

    @PrMinisterGR
    Nobody wants an OS wars in a serious thread.
    While the implementation of aforementioned feature is a welcomed one, I just pointed out that Microsoft will do their thing, as always.
    Not choosing sides, no placing the blame, no nothing.
    Just the reality, as it is.

    This kind of software is a worrying sign that NVMe SSDs are dying alot?

    I don't know but seems a little strange why would MS want to tell you that info.
