I had bought an Intel SSD drive to put in my laptop (which I did) when I upgraded to Windows 7. However, it's an "S1" model, so it will not do TRIM (only the S2 Intel models do or will)
I keep reading about how this drive will eventually strangle itself when it gets to a certain use level of reads/writes/deletes.
My question is this. Would it help if I backed up the drive (which I would do normally), and every 6 months or so wipe and reformat it, then restore? It seems to me that this would solve the reused block problem.
