    Nope. The functions are separate. Windows 7 will use TRIM automatically, although I'm unsure that you'd get it if you cloned a Windows installation from a spinner onto an SSD.

    To check whether TRIM is enabled (stolen from another post):

    run (as admin)

    fsutil behavior query DisableDeleteNotify

    If the result is '0' TRIM is enabled.

    Oddly enough, it shows Trim as enabled under Win7 X64 on my old (2008) Compaq notebook. It has an AMD CPU and an NVidia chipset; no AHCI.

    I would check out the SSD review web site lots of info on there Forums.The SSD Review The Worlds Dedicated SSD Education and Review Resource. The SSD Review. I have a pair of 120gig SSD in my HP dv9230us Laptop boots very fast running Windows 8 Pro with Media Center. They say you should set recycle bin to remove junk files immediately when deleted.
