Windows 7: Recycle Bin very slow - SDD drive

Recycle Bin very slow - SDD drive

I installed Windows 7 on an Intel SSD drive with ACHI and TRIM enabled.

Everything worked fine until 2-3 months ago when the PC suddenly froze. It would not reboot until I changed from ACHI til IDE in BIOS.

Right after boot or running TRIM the Recycle Bin work as it used to do when ACHI and TRIM was enabled. If PC has been on for a few days it will take maybe more than 1 minute before the Recycle Bin respond.

Is this a know issue with Windows 7, SSD and IDE? Can't find anythign about it.

What SSD do you have?

When AHCI is enabled, what exactly happens.

Intel X25-M SSD 80GB 2,5".

Can't run in ACHI mode anymore, but before PC froze in ACHI mode and forced me to boot in IDE mode I didn't notice any such problem with the Recycle Bin.

I've been running the exact same SSD for almost a year now and have put it through its paces and haven't had an issue; maybe you should consider a clean install, have a look at the info below.
