    Re: Cloning Windows 7 From Hard Drive to Intel X25M SSD - Best Way?

    cloned my raptor to my x25-m using acronis and it worked wonderfully.

    windows i assume enabled trim automatically as i updated to the latest firmware.

    it also made sure to take my ssd out of the auto defrag schedule.

    Yup, just to make sure TRIM is on, launch the Command Prompt as Administrator and type this:

    fsutil behavior query DisableDeleteNotify

    If the outcome is 0, TRIM is enabled. If the outcome is 1, TRIM is not enabled.

    Re: Cloning Windows 7 From Hard Drive to Intel X25M SSD - Best Way?

    Bumping an old thread again...

    Obviously if you guys have already done it, it should work - but I'm sure somewhere I read that there were some other things that had to be done in Win7 if you clone a hard drive onto an SSD to avoid incompatible boot devices and other such things. Is it really as simple as ensuring TRIM is enabled in the bios?

    I'm considering buying a laptop that ships with a hd (with Windows preinstalled) and then swapping it for an SSD as it's cheaper than buying the SSD as an option from the reseller. Is it truly just a matter of imaging it over and making sure it's not being automatically defragmented?
