I thought that this sort of thing was "hidden" from the host system? How can O&O defrag, "internally defrag" SSDs? I would like to know.
Edit: Possibly, I'm misunderstanding their new marketing materials. Anyways, I just remembered, on NT-based systems, there's a specific defragmentation interface used by all defrag tools. If O&O uses that interface, then they can't be doing what they (appear?) to claim that they are doing, at least above and beyond the filesystem block to "physical" host LBAs. (With device LBAs still hidden by the FTL of the SSD.)
