Is this product useful on SSD?

I plan to purchase a MBP and want all the speed I can get.
Will this improve performance with an SSD?

  • Best Answer:

    You can use Drive Genius 3 on a SSD drive, however it is not recommended to use the defrag tool on SSD drives according to Intel's website.

    All other tools like , repair , repartition, drive slim , duplicate and other work just fine.

    Here is Intel's FAQ on defragging:

    SSD devices, unlike traditional HDDs, see no performance benefit from traditional HDD defragmentation tools. Using these tools simply adds unnecessary wear to the SSD. It is recommended that you disable any automatic or scheduled defragmentation utilities for your Intel SSD.
