No. But you will need to add the RAID drivers to your system, then take an image, set up the array, then copy the image back to the RAID.

Depending on how much you have installed (and how much crap you have built up) it might be easier/better to reinstall though.

"Trim" is a command that Windows 7 sends to the SSD to tell it to delete files that you have deleted!
On a HDD.When you delete a file, the OS just marks it deleted! Then data is just written over it!
But with a SSD, the data has to be deleted first. Before that part of the drive can have data written to it again! So the "trim" command!

Without Trim, once all the blocks on the SSD have been written to once. Any more writes would be slower because the drive would have to delete then write from now on!
But with "Trim" the blocks would already be clean
