Just a couple quick questions about using Intel SRT 1. Can I defragment a HDD that has been accelerated by a SSD? And would it help me any? 2. How do I install garbage collection? 3. Should a SSD be formatted before using it as a cache drive? 4. For a Crucial M4 SSD is there anything else recommended to do besides enabling TRIM and superfetch/prefetch for caching? Thanks

1: yes and yes. Writes and deletes are to the hdd just like normal. 2: you don't. its built into the SSD firmware and runs soley on the SSD. 3: no. When you setup the cache you don't even have to use all the drive for cache. You can dedicate some for cache and some to be a drive (which you will then format) 4: for SRT you need to set the sata ports of the drives into raid mode, not ahci.
