I was trying to shrink a partition (Windows 10). For traditional hard drives, I can use the
Optimize Tool to defragment the hard drive to free up disk sectors towards the end of the HD and shrink the volume as much as possible.
However, I read that the
Optimize tool in Windows does not defrag SSD drives. Therefore, it's not of much use as it is for mechanic hard drives (for shrinking).
Is there a Windows tool that can "conceptually" move the sectors to the beginning of a SSD to help shrinking?
Ideally, I am looking for something from Windows or Microsoft.
Note: I looked around in Superuser, and related posts e.g. How to shrink Windows 7 boot partition with unmovable files are all about moving unmovable files for mechanical HD. They do not seem to address the issue of SSDs.
