    Having got a pretty clear agreement to my feelings regarding the "useless" value of defragging an SSD in a previous thread, I now wonder if there is anything to be gained from running "check disk" (chkdsk) on an SSD?

    The thing to be gained is knowing if your hard disc has a problem or not. It will do no harm to an SSD.

    NTFS files will still need to be checked and corrected.

    Much will be gained if you have corruption of logical data.
    Any time the information about what the disk contains and the actual data differs, you will have problems. Chkdsk will fix these anomalies.

    cheers, Paul
