The disk is a SSD. Intel 535 Series 480GB.

I did some more tests today, in this order...

Microsoft Optimizer of C: drive..........2 seconds
Intel Toolbox...............................10 seconds
BIBM PartWork Trim...................... 12 minutes

BIBM PartWork Trim of a clean 1903 install... 20 seconds (same SSD)

I'm sure it's probably fragmentation. The command is sent to the drive and
the drive takes it from there, so if it has to send a lot of commands,
that's where all the time is. So a delete with trim would be quick
because only limited by max size allowed for trim.

Thanks but I didn't think fragmentation applied to SSDs. Anything I can do about it?

It would just be issuing a bunch of commands.

This helped. I restored today's image with the "Compact Data" option. Now BIBM PartWork Trim takes 15 seconds instead of 12 minutes.
