Hello Samuel,

I'm not sure what you mean. Looking at your TXT file, it shows your Corsair SSD listed with the proper model number. Where does it not show that it's a SSD drive?

Do you have the latest Intel 9.​1.​1.​1025 chipset driver installed?

It doesn't show anywhere, but that's not the problem. The problem is that I'm able to run defrag on it. SSD's are not surposed to be defragged. And no I haven't installed that driver, but isn't that driver supposed for 5,4,3,900 chipsets?

You do not have the full model number of your Asus P5Q motherboard, but it will be either a X48 or P48 chipset (Intel 4 series chipset), so it will work for your motherboard and may be able to allow Windows 7 to recognize the SSD better.

I had that issue with an older SSD that I use to have, and just had to manually turn off the defrag schedule for it.

How did you TRIM it? Well,, I mean, these drives gets slow if you don't TRIM them
By the way, do you know if indexing isn't needed with ssd?
I did a defrag analyse by mistake on the drive,, do you think it has taken any damage?

You would not want to defrag a SSD. Doing so will shorten it's life span.

The newer generation of SSD's have native TRIM support when used with Windows 7. Your SSD shows that it supports TRIM with Windows 7, so it may just be a issue if you didn't have the latest Intel chipset driver above and the latest 9.​6.​0.​1014 Intel AHCI/RAID drivers installed.

How about the intel matrix storage manager then? Does this software/driver need to be uninstalled?

It should be updated when the other drivers above are installed.
