Win 7 is SSD aware - the best policy for someone inexperienced is to just leave it alone.
You don't have to enable AHCI, but it is really recommended - you will lose a lot of performance if you don't.
And don't format in FAT32 - format in NTFS (which is what the Windows installer will do automatically. Really, just treat it like a normal drive. Don't overthink it.

you can manually set up the defrag schedule for each drive you know. lol, or disable it and vice versa.

Except when you go to the list of drives to choose from in the schedule page, the SSD isn't listed. smile.gif

You can manually force a defrag on the SSD (at least it is listed on that page - I've never tried to select it), but it is not on the scheduled task page, at least on Win 7. src - me.

On the actual scheduled task page - not the screen you posted above, but the next screen in where it has the check-boxes? Because I was messing with it again just this weekend and neither my M4 nor my 830 show on that page, even though they do show on the initial defrag page you posted.

I kinda made me queasy to see it enabled.

I mean I dissabled it when I had no other drives installed yet soo I don't know what to tell you.

Theres no mistake that it wasn't the SSD lol.

Very strange. I just checked my Server 2008 machine and it also doesn't show the SSD in the list of disks to select for a scheduled defrag - so it wasn't something I changed and then forgot about.

Looks like this:
