Thanks for posting in our communities. Your thread as been moved to Intel® Optane™ Memory support.
Once you enable Intel Optane memory, both Intel Optane memory and the accelerated SATA drive appear as one SSD volume to the operating system. As a result, the options for defrag aren't available.
You can find more information about Intel Optane memory features and requirements here:

EDIT: Just for you to know, defrag is not available since it is not required. The Intel® Rapid Storage Driver (used by Intel Optane Memory) takes charge of maintenance and garbage collection functions on the accelerated drive.
I'm in the same situation.
Optane + HDD = SSD (viewed by O&O Defrag).
I disabled Optane and I defragged my HDD and rebuilt it after.
I have to remove softwares. I have to "clean up" my HDD.
It will inevitably be fragmented.
My questions are :
- is this the correct method?
- How many times can I disable and reactivate the Optane memory?
- or no defrag. Optane optimises the system.
There is an information in Optane software:
"last optimization on xxx at yy:yy.
Nest optimization on ddd at tt:tt."
(sorry for my english. I hope you understand what I say/want to do).
Thanks a lot for your answer.
