Optimizing Systems Reserved Drive

Issue/Question

Why am I unable to optimize my System Reserved drive, even though it says it needs optimization?

Environment

  • Windows 10
    • Settings
      • Defragment and Optimize your drives

Resolution

Microsoft recommends that you do not optimize your Systems Reserved drive, as it is unnecessary. The partition being fragmented has no effect on performance. Your Systems Reserved drive's current status may be Needs Optimization, but Microsoft assures that it can be ignored.
