I have a Windows 2012 server configured with two SSD under a Software RAID 1 (controlled by Windows), under that configuration the optimization tool is not supported.
Is the TRIM still scheduled/performed by the OS, just not visibly so, and with no manual controls?
Is there a way to force it, given it's a simple mirroring RAID, and the OS is capable of TRIM when the SSD are not RAID'ed?
I found an "option" early on, but it's obviously not suitable for use in production: detach one disk from the raid (thus killing the RAID), perform the TRIM on the single-disk, then rebuild the RAID.
(the SSDs are 120GB Intel Sandforce in case that matters, they host several databases, are under constant read/write 24/7, and there is a data rotation of several gigabytes per day)
