SSD new install question
 
OK so I got my crucial M4 SSD drive.

I am going to reinsall windows 7 soon once ivy bridge is released. So for now I will just use it for my games.

I am running Windows 7, is there something I need to do to make sure Trim is working? Also i keep reading about it never defrag, when I open up defrag I see it listed but shows as never run.

Is this ok? Do i need to worry about anything else or disable or check something?

Thanks guys! So I can see Trim and partition is working as it should!

A lot of rules of what you can and cannot do, biggest thing seems to be to make sure not to write to it too much.

Out of curiosity what is a lot? I have moved several games back and forth to the SSD. What is really the life expectancy of an SSD drive? Do i need to be ultra paranoid in writing to the SSD?

Really you can do a ton of writes to it, I'm just a bit overly paranoid. So long as you aren't running some kind of database server or are using it as a DVR you're fine. They have tons of built in wear leveling algorithms and garbage collection, pretty high tech stuff.

One of the best reference threads I've ever seen in regards to SSD's.
