I have read in some blogs + articles that Win7 detects SSD disks and adjusts some settings based on that.
I have a OCZ Core series 128GB disk, and it works superb, but I don't think Win7 detected it as a SSD.
Disk defragmentation schedule was still on, for one example.
So, what does Win7 adjust when a SSD is detected?
How can I manually tell windows that the disk in my system is a SSD?
Tuesday, March 31, 2009 10:33 AMI would also be interested in a reply to the above question. I have W7 installed on a OCZ 60gb Core V2 and it works fine, just a bit worried about wear and optimisation.
I was using a trial version of MFT but found that the built in bench mark was eratic, but worked fine with Vista installed on the SSD, also the WEI would not give a score with W7 installed and MFT installed, but gave a score of 5.9 with it disabled. This is most probably a problem with MFT as it is still in beta, but I wondered if there were optimisations in W7 which were clashing with MFT? I would rather just use W7 but was using MFT to prolong the life of the SSD and optimise writes, (all tweaks applied as per the OCZ technical forum).

OCZ has a forum for your device :
Hope this helps.
Friday, May 08, 2009 9:12 AMI am using the Samsung 128gb mlc ssd and same thing. W7 did not detected my drive as SSD. Even after the performance index.

The WEI scored my disk at 7.2 - not too shabby. Made me happy :)
