Win7 and SSDs

Recommended Posts

Trick is with the SSD's is to use windows 7 and a SSD that supports TRIM. If not you will need a program like Intel SSD toolbox to keep it running in tip top shape. Pagefile should be left alone on the new SSD's.

Can you run Intel SSD toolbox on an SSD with the TRIM feature?

I am using W7 x64. When I use the Intel SSD toolbox on my Intel SSD it fills it up and never frees up the space.

If you're running Win7, you don't need to run the SSD toolbox...the trim function is constantly being executed as part of Win7's routine housekeeping. XP and Vista are not SSD-aware, so with them it's necessary to periodically run the SSD Toolbox to identify cleared/erased SSD pages to the OS so it can do writes without having to do a full read-erase-write cycle when a page is written out.CheersBob ScottColonel, USAF (ret)ATP IMEL Gulfstream II-III-IV-VColorado Springs, CO
