Also to make my SSD units more efficient?""

Hi Errol,

I believe they perform as well as possible as they are. RAID does not help as far as I know, they do not have the physical seek time issues of a conventional HD.

DO NOT defrag them, it wears them out prematurely and gains you nothing. Make sure automatic defraging is turned off in your OS.

I have one in my laptop, the Intel 520 240GB drive. I just back it up occasionally.

Regards, Ken
