Hello,
I just installed a SSD, 640g black, and win7. I put OS on the SSD but my computer isnt showing the 640 black, why is that.

I am really impressed with the SSD.

Go to Disk Management. Format and label your HDD.

It's already enabled since you have a SSD.

Your SSD should already have a MBR.

Some say disable it, and some say "I didn't buy SSD's to not use them!"

I disable Prefetch and windows search! And also move the IE Temp file to a HDD

Also should i be defraging my SSD like I do my HD? or is that what trims all about. And do i need to do anything other then just have a SSD in, with trim?
