Solved Windows 7 Trim Tags: SSD Windows 7 Storage Last response: July 24, 2012 11:44 AM in Storage Share WilliamP July 22, 2012 4:02:42 PM I have a new system with an SSD. I am running Windows 7 64 bit. Now my question is this. I know that 7 is supposed to handle Trim on the SSD when the system is idle. First of all will a screen saver be ok? Also how do I know Trim is in fact working?
