I have recently purchased an Intel X-25 G2 SSD (160GB) as an extra drive for my laptop.
I created a fixed size disk virtual disk (40GB) and have installed Windows Server 2008 R2 onto this VHD. I now 'boot to VHD'.
(I want multiple development environments, therefore separate VHD's are the way to go for me.)
This works great and fast. No complaints.
Just a nagging feeling. How does TRIM work in this scenario? Am I potentially trashing my SSD by using it like this?
I couldn't find any definitive answers via Google.. I ran "fsutil behavior query disabledeletenotify" and it returned '0'. However this is apparently not definitive.
I ran the defragmentation program, and it seems the SSD drive is available for this task.
1) Any way I can determine TRIM is working? 2) If not, how do I enable?
