Windows 10 May 2020 Update, Otherwise Known As Version 2004, Was Released In May With At Least Ten Known Issues, SSD Drives


Microsoft later expanded the list of the problems and acknowledged that this feature update is also plagued with a bug that breaks Drive Optimize tool.

After upgrading to Windows 10 version 2004, users observed that Optimize SSD Drives (also known as defragmentation tool) is not correctly recording the last time a drive has been optimized.

As a result, when you open the tool,  you will see that your SSD drive says it ‘Needs Optimization’ even though you’ve manually optimized the SSD Drivesalready or automatic maintenance was run this morning.

Since the last optimizations times are forgotten, Windows 10’s built-in maintenance tool started defragging an SSD drive much more often when you restart Windows.

With Windows 10 Build 19042.487 (20H2) for Insiders, Microsoft has finally resolved all problems with the Optimize SSD Drives(also known as defragmentation tool).

As we know, defragging an SSD too much is not good for the drive. After ignoring the reports and feedback for more than 5 months, Microsoft is finally fixing the defragmentation problem with Build 19042.487 in the Beta channel.

Microsoft is also expected to release these fixes for non-Insiders using Windows 10 May 2020 Update (version 2004) later this week.
