Windows 10 misidentify my drives (SSD or HDD)


I just reinstalled Windows 10. I just went to "Defragment and Optimize Drives" and I noticed that my hard drive (Model: WD20 EZAZ) is marked as an SSD, and it only runs TRIM, not Defragmenting.

How can I change it to a HDD?

 

Edit:

I also saw Windows 10 automatically defragmenting my SSD, with model: Gigabyte GP-GSTFS31240NTD.

 

Now I am confused, shouldn't defragment be done on a HDD, while TRIM on SSD, and both defragment and TRIM on some HDD's?

 

For now, I disabled the scheduled optimization.

 

How can I fix this?

Most likely because it is on USB.  connect it to a SATA port and see if you get the same results.

I tried to use SATA, but still the same issue.
