    Was i correct in understanding that if you use an SSD drive, Windows 7 will automatically shut off specific windows services such as defrag, superfetch...etc.?

    Cause i got an Corsair Real ssd, the fastest in the world supposedly, install W7 and later realized Superfetch, defrag is running. I know i can manually shut them down, i just wanted to know why W7 did not do so itself? would this mean an error in W7 detecting my drive properly affecting Trim and garbage?

    I still can't any specific info about TRIM and Garbage collection, would they still function ok?
    Hard to believe W7 been around this long and still have troubles detecting a simple SSD properly, bet it never gets fixed either.

    It's important to shut off those services one way or another if the OS doesn't do it for you. SSD's have a relatively short life compared to mechanical drives and each memory location has a limited number of writes before it fails. Anything that increases that rate, such as defragging, reduces the overall lifespan of the drive.
