• Windows Latest: A fix for the broken Win10 version 2004 Drive Optimizer (Defrag) tool is being tested

    Just in from Mayank Parmar at Windows Latest:

    According to the changelog of Build 19042.487, this issue has now been resolved in Windows 10 20H2*. After beta testing the patch with Insiders, Microsoft plans to roll out the same update to those with Windows 10… version 2004 later this week or before September 1.

    So it looks like we may see an “optional, non-security, C/D Week” patch for Win10 version 2004 (no surprise there) that fixes the defrag/Drive Optimizer bug. (The bug shows an incorrect date for the last defrag run.)

    *In case you haven’t been following the latest obfuscating changes in Win10 numbering conventions, Win10 version 20H2 is the next version of Win10 – the one that follows Win10 version 2004. Version 2004 is still having teething problems, like this one.
