Optimum configuration for SSD in Windows 7

I have a new 60GB Corsair SSD with the sandforce II controller and TRIM.
I have the SATA mode in the bios set to RAID/AHCI.
How can I check to make sure Win7 is properly recognising the SSD as an SSD and thus utilising all abilities?
I also have 2x 750GB spinpoint F3's for storage.

Type "Command Prompt" in the search box => then right-click on the resulting "Command Prompt" and select Run as Administrator.

In the window that opens, type the following command:

fsutil behavior query DisableDeleteNotify

If the result is zero, TRIM is enabled and functioning in Windows 7

Nothing else to do.

[If for any reason it's not a zero, post back & I'll tell you how to change it]

tis a zero

does this have anything to do with the enableprefetcher and enablesuperfetch values in HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session Manager\Memory Management\PrefetchParameters
???

because these used to be "3" but i changed them to "0" and restarted before posting this question.

No -- those are settings that impact how pre-fetching is done to cache items during boot with XP.    They're really obsolete with '7 ... and certainly with an SSD (where you've effectively got the entire OS "cached").
