I took the plunge and installed Windows 7 on my computer. Even better, I installed it on my new Intel x25m (got to love that SSD goodness).
Windows Vista was known to thrash, throttle, and otherwise wear out an SSD. Apparently Windows 7 addresses some of the more serious issues.
However, I am more concerned that maybe Windows 7 is not using those optimizations. I am paranoid, but at the cost of the SSD (ouch!!), I want to get as much life out of it as possible.
Is it possible to confirm that Windows 7 is using all of the cool new SSD optimizations? That it has properly confirmed that your drive is an SSD?
Thanks for your feedback. Contrary to the Q & A, Superfetch IS running on this system. And given the answer to the command line I was given, I think that Windows 7 is NOT using optimizations. VERY ANNOYING. Is there something I can do to make Windows 7 treat my drive like the SSD that it is?
Also, what is this talk of the drive "alignment"? Is there a way to confirm that as well?
Also, disk defragging WAS enabled. I disabled it.
FYI, the Windows Experience Index for the system is 7.8 for the drive.
