Windows 7: Creating system image of HDD for re-image to SSD

thanks WHS
How do i know that TRIM is working? Is it automatically activated under windows 7? There were no driver updates or anything like that when i rebooted for the first time after instal but i thought this may have been all done by the intel installation software that came with the SSD

The command is:

fsutil behavior query DisableDeleteNotify

If the result is '0' TRIM is enabled.

thanks again guys. It shows "0" so all good

I just downloaded AS SSD benchmark tool and ran a test.

Can you guys have a look at the result and see if this looks right? I thought the SEQ Read Write should be faster.

Hmm, you want the thruth and nothing but the truth ==> the scores are low to medium.

The scores to focus on are 4k R/W and Access time.

Sata2 should not be the problem. All those nums are well within Sata2 capability. Suggest to run Atto and see what that yields.

That looks better. As I said, for the OS you have to focus on the 4K numbers (and the Access time). The bigger blocks are hardly or never used by the OS and are therefore only of academic interest.

The average access time is around 0.1ms - some are half of that.

Here are Atto numbers of my old M4. Although it is not that great with the large blocks (which is anyhow irrelevant), the 4K nums are OK.

Creating a System Image.
When my Win 7 computer was new I created a System Image (In Backup & Restore). Is it necessary to keep updating this backup or having created the System Image is that it? Mind you having read some of the posts here I wonder if it is worth it. Thanks for any advice.
