Hey guys, just wondering if it's a good idea to do a defrag on my drives?

This computer had both the SSD + HDD join together for Intel Smart Response. Do I need to do a disk defrag on these or can I just defrag the HDD?

Any advantages or disadvantages?

Thanks. :)

SSD's don't suffer from fragmentation, so it can't be defragged anyways. No reason not to defragment your HDD though, if it is fragmented.

On a side note: if you're running Windows 7, there's usually no need to defrag since it does it on its own in the background :)
