I have just installed a new Sandisk Plus 240Gb SSD running Windows Vista Business 32 bit and the latest SSD Dashboard V1.4.1, and it does not recognize my SSD at all. There is a secondary mechanical SATA drive on the same controller. I have checked and Vista reports the SSD drive as a SCSI device. (I have read in older psotings that OS identifying as SCSI is a problem for Dashboard that was supposed to be fixed long ago). There were no BIOS options in my ageing motherboard to change SATA settings.
Is there any way I can get the Dashboard to recognize the drive?
My reason is that my understanding is that Vista does no support TRIM, so I was hoping to manually TRIM the SSD regularly using the Sandisk Dashboard.
Alternatively, does anyone know of another way to implement TRIM on Windows Vista?
I would think the drive would become pretty useless in speed over time (negating the whole point of the SSD), without an option to TRIM.
