        My desktop and laptop are both currently running 20H2. On my desktop I have a backup spinning drive connected via USB3 that Windoze thinks is a solid state drive, and offers Trim but not defrag.

        My laptop, has a solid state drive only, but Windoze thinks it’s a spinning drive and offers defrag but not Trim.

        What the heck!?
