I have an ssd on ide mode in windows 7. (its a clone of the hdd and that was in ide mode). I just turned on ahci mode (after using it 2 months in ide mode) and it works faster. I was wondering if there was trim enabled while it was in ide mode (windows 7 detected that it was a ssd - disk defrag was disabled). I heard multiple sources online say it does have trim because the something ide.sys driver has trim support but some also say it does not.
Also if trim wasn't enabled, would there be any sustaining damage to the drive or did it only affect performance?
