During yesterday’s Patch Tuesday event, Microsoft announced an expansion of the deployment of Windows 10 May 2020 (20H1/Version 2004) to invite more users to upgrade by manually checking for Windows Update updates. Although the upgrade process is smooth, some user feedback causes the built-in tools to optimize storage to not work properly after the upgrade.
Upgrading windows 10 Version 2004 feature updates can cause problems with disk optimization and defragmentation and disk optimization tools based on user feedback and re-entry testing by external media.
Disk Optimization is a built-in tool for Windows 10 systems that allow users to defragment fragmented files and resolve performance issues. By default, Windows 10 automatically maintains all partitions every week, and you can view the status in the Optimize Drives tool.
After upgrading the Windows 10 Version 2004 feature update, disk optimization tools can help users resolve performance issues, but they cannot report the correct status.
For example, the Disk Optimization Tool reports that the scan is not running on your PC and still shows that optimization is required after the optimization operation has been performed. This is a big problem for administrators who want to check the health of your drive because you can’t see if your drive is optimized.
Note, however, that the functionality of this tool is not damaged. , it can still help users fix Windows performance issues automatically or manually. You can verify the status of optimization/fragmentation and TRIM by following these steps.
1. Open the Start menu.
2. Enter Event Viewer and open it.
3. In The Event Viewer, navigate to the Windows Log application.
4. Right-click the application and click Filter the current log.
5. Select Defrag in the event source drop-down menu.
6. Click OK.
The middle pane displays a list of events, and clicking on them displays details in the preview pane. It’s worth noting that as part of the Windows Insider program, the bug has been reported to Microsoft, with users asking the company not to ship updates with the bug.
In fact, this BUG was fixed in the Windows 10 Build 19551 update released in January this year, but it’s not clear why it went into a stable version. In a blog post on January 23, 2020, Microsoft noted, “Thank you for reporting an error alert that the disk optimization dashboard incorrectly shows that the optimization did not occur.” We’ve fixed it in this Build version. “
