Windows 7: Re-Format a SSD Drive - anything I need to do?

Re-Format a SSD Drive - anything I need to do?

I dual boot and I feel that my partitions are in a bit of a mess.

Also - my partitions are not aligned correctly according to this tutorial that I followed. The reason why I know this is b/c I hit the Start menu and typed in msinfo32. Then Components > Storage > Disks. My SSD was on the list and on the "Partition Starting Offset" item the number was NOT divisible by 4096 (that is, if dividing it by 4096 equals a whole number and not a decimal).

The article - (from lifehacker ) suggested that my partition is correctly aligned.

Does anyone know what I would need to "start all over again"

Can I just simply wipe the drive or re-fomat it and enable trim and all the other suggested tips then re-install the OS's? (Windows 7 and Linux)

THANKS - always get great help here thanks
