Default Just Bought - 09-05-2009, 03:13 AM

I just bought the 32GB from eWiz. I would of went through Newegg but they were out of stock.

I was very close to buying the RunCore, but I waited almost a month for restocking and grew tired. From what I can tell, I am going to get a similar performance for less money and actually was able to buy something in stock. I hope it goes well.

Now to get the Win7 images ready for an install

I have a ST 64 gig in my mini 9, got it about 2 weeks ago on newegg, went there today to post my review (the drive is awesome, OSX 10.5.8 boots in about 30 seconds)

I would highly reccomend this drive, hopefully newegg gets them back in stock ASAP.

good luck.

Can anyone confirm if the new ST 32GB SDD (FEM32GFDL) does / does not support the Windows 7 TRIM Command?

I can find no evidence that they do - ST has made a big deal of adding TRIM to their desktop/server line of SSDs. You're unlikely to find TRIM in netbook SSDs until sometime next year. It's still in beta among the leading controller developers.

You can see from my .sig that I have one of the 64 double wide ST running OS X. Very nice drive. I can boot Mac OS X faster than my RunCore equipped 32G mini9 can resume Win 7

I haven't haven't been able to find a reference either, but was hopeful that someone with one of the new ST models and Windows 7 would be able per form a a quick check ...

To determine if your SSD supports TRIM, open a console as Admin;
Code:
fsutil behavior query DisableDeleteNotify
If the console returns a '0', your drive supports TRIM and it is ENABLED.

... I did find post indicating that TRIM was supported (enabled) on one of the RunCore models, but don't have RunCore to confirm.

@Dually

I have a ST 64g double wide. I did the following:

Code:
fsutil behavior query DisableDeleteNotify
Here is the response:

Code:
Microsoft Windows [Version 6.1.7100]
Copyright (c) 2009 Microsoft Corporation.  All rights reserved.

C:\Windows\system32>fsutil behavior query DisableDeleteNotify
DisableDeleteNotify = 0
So the answer if YES!

I don't trust this. The command also returns 0 for my nearly year-old RunCore SSD.

All ... "my bad" ... DisableDeleteNotify just enables / disables Trim support in the OS, and therefore isn't a valid method for determining if a drive supports the Trim command. (That's what I get for taking a Google hit at face value without any addtional research.)

Holmes4 ... given your results, I did some research and found that DisableDeleteNotify is enabled by default ... so, the OS issues the DeleteNotify (Trim) command but doesn't actually know if command will be supported or not ... the drive will either act on it or ignore it.

jaqrah ... thanks for running the query.
