    Rog Raidr and "trim"

    My Rog Raidr is treated like a normal HDD in my Windows 8.1 OS.
    If I right-mouse-click on the drive>properties>tools>optimize, then all my drives are listed as harddisks (for defragmentation) and also my Raidr is listed as HDD instead of SSD. Windows 8.1 is said to do a trim command instead of defragmentation, if it recognizes a drive to be an SSD and for that reason defragmentaion should not be disabled for a SSD. But in my case, Win 8.1 doesn`t recognize it as SSD. How can I tell Win, that it is an SSD?
    BTW. my OS is not on the Raidr. I`ve also read this:

    What else can I do?

    Yes, I ran "winsat formal". But it did not work on my PC (it also did not work for the thread opener of the other thread, as well, because the Raidr is not used for the OS).

    Hello

    From an elevated command prompt try winsat disk -drive x where x is the drive letter of your RAIDR drive.

    What is an "elevated command prompt"? And what does "winsat disk -drive x" actually do? Thanks for your help btw.!

    Hello

    Based on the results of post #8 the drive should now be detected as a SSD. If not this is a Windows issue you will need to sort out.
