Radish Posted September 13, 2018 Share Posted September 13, 2018 I'm kind of at an in-between stage in that I have my day to day working system, Win7 x64 SP1, installed to a SSD. However, I have a backup Win7 x64 SP1 system installed to a HDD. My thinking is that if the SSD ever goes bang! then I can just switch to the old HDD and be up and running again very quickly. I have been making separate boot partition images of these systems for restore purposes if I corrupt them. However, as I update the working system, which is on SSD, then I've been manually replicating that on the HDD. This means that (so far) I have been keeping two sets of separate image files. One image for the SSD, the other image for the HDD. Today I was looking at my notes for the SSD system and thinking that that system would work just as well on a HDD -- so I could eliminate keeping two sets of images for systems that are in essence the same system. I would also be freed of replicating the SSD system over onto the HDD. The only flaw I can see in this is that the for the SSD system I need TRIM enabled. So now I'm wondering if enabling TRIM on a HDD system would cause any problems for that system? Or would the HDD operate just fine even with TRIM enabled? I'm even wondering, if I restored the system on the HDD from an image of the SSD system would Windows 7 immediately recognise that TRIM isn't necessary on the HDD and, hence, automatically disable it on first boot into the HDD system?
