Should SSD be optimized?

If you’re using an SSD on anything older than Windows 7, TRIM isn’t supported and you should probably upgrade anyway. In short, most of the downsides to using an SSD aren’t as bad as they used to be and you don’t really need to stress if you never “optimized” your drive. It’s already pretty optimal.
