    SSD for storage

    Carl2

      I have a 160 Gb Intel SSD for the OS, Win7, I get good performance and a 7.8 rating. the boot time is reduced to about half.  I was just about to order some software and found a good price on a 64 Gb SSD.  Since the drive would just be used for storage and not have Win 7 on it is the trim for this drive enabled?

          if the second SSD you speak of supports TRIM itself, then yes, if it's plugged into the system that's running Win7 with the msahci driver (i.e. the native AHCI driver), it will have TRIM enabled.

           

          Worth checking that 7 doesn't place the storage SSD into the defragment schedule, too.

            Thanks for the info, I think I'll give it a try from what you've said.  If it's performance isn't that great I could put it into this computer as the main drive.
