No worky. The optimizer says it can't run on RAID volumes. I have no RAID, no compression, no encryption, no shadow data. Just a single 80 GB Postville on an ICHR10 controller. Running XP PRO EN SP3 with bare (Windows-installed) drivers. I reinstalled the previous version and it worked again. Congrats Intel. You've done it again. I'm glad your core business is chips and not software.

I have TWO X25-M 80 GB SSD's - the optimizer will work on one - not the other. Gives the 'cannot run on raid' to me on the one drive. Using AMD 850 southbridge in AHCI - I have tried all of the ports for the drive that won't run the optimizer - no luck, wheras the one that works can do so on any port. Only workaround is once a week have to change back to IDE mode in the bios - run optimizer - then back to AHCI. This is in windows 7 64 bit by the way. Not certain that trim is working under these circumstances for the one drive either.

To tell if TRIM is working ,You have to go in comand prompt , type fsutil behavior query disabledeletenotify. ( if it shows 1, means it's off ) (if it shows 0, means it's on ) So you are looking for it to show ( 0 ) than you know the TRIM is working .
