BIOS error message during installation
When downloading the proper BIOS firmware updater for your Razer Blade laptops, you may run into the following issue when installing: This firmware tool is for use only with Blade and compatible systems. This application will now close.

Solid State Drives cannot be defragmented.

There is no need to defrag an SSD Drive.
