NEW version: 20.1.8996
« on: June 27, 2020, 02:53:44 PM »
Good morning...

I am looking for advice / help on the new version NEW version: 20.1.8996

I am not sure where this post will be sent to or if it is in the right WEBforum area but I will apologize in advance as this is not a Avast option that I have had reason to use apart from today.

I updated my Avast premium security to the new version NEW version: 20.1.8996 a few days ago and all was well. The day after installation I decided to look at the new improvements and found the ' Trim operation ' for SSD's
I of course ran it, it took about 15 minutes to complete and all seemed well. My SSD useable drive space had increased by 5 GB so the trim option seemed to have done what it said until I went to shut down my Windows 7 PC.
My PC took 8 minutes to shut down when it always  does it in under 30 seconds. I looked at various options and settings which may have changed but I could find nothing. Further shutdown operations throughout the days made no change, it was still taking between 7 to 8 minutes to shutdown, I had also noticed it was taking an extra minute or so on startup.
Being very frustrated at these issues I decided to got restore back to 1 of 4 restore points that I always have available and restore my PC to to the last point to get rid of this irritating problem..

UNFORTUNATELY.... The 4 restore points had disappeared completely.. I have scanned and checked and they are nowhere to be found.. The only changes that have happened on my PC in the last week is the AVAST upgrade..I'm guessing that the extra 5 GB increase in my SSD's storage that I mentioned earlier could be the deleted space from my restore points caused by the new ' SSD Trim ' option being run after the upgrade.

Looking forward to any replies

Sorry can't help but I'd be surprised if what you've described is not AVAST's fault.  Four restore points gone and 5GB of new space created on your SSD sounds like a perfect fit to me.

It has a history of interfering with restore point operation and setting up the TRIM operation to delete them as 'unnecessary' data is in character.

Why deleting restore points affects shutdown not sure unless AVAST's tool is stupidly deleting all restore points including the current one or is deleting other System Volume Information files it should not be. That might provoke Windows to create new files including a new restore point before shutdown. If this AVAST tool is proactive they could even be fighting each other.

Just speculating - I'll be interested to the read the expert explanations for this problem.

But the fact is that you should not have needed to run a third party trim tool at all.

TRIM is an integral part of modern Windows OS and is enabled by default when using a SSD. It does not need any 'help'.
