How to check if TRIM is turned on in Windows 7

1) First open the command prompt with admin privlages

2) Type fsutil behavior query DisableDeleteNotify

It will either give you back a 1 or a 0. This is a little backwards to what you are use to. 1 is turned off and 0 is turned on.

If windows says "DisableDeleteNotify = 0" That means TRIM is enabled. If it says 1 then it's not enabled
