    SSDs don’t require defrag in the conventional manner since the access times are very fast, for sequential reads and writes and random reads. The bottleneck occurs for random writes which can be pretty slow and exacerbated by free space fragmentation. So free space consolidation in the background with a utility like Diskeeper’s Hyperfast is supposed to help. has some useful info.

    I haven’t used an SSD yet, so I haven’t had a need to use this utility, but for my conventional drives, I do use Diskeeper 2009 pro (excellent BTW) and I noticed that Hyperfast is an add-on for it.
