    Just thought of this, but is it possible that TRIM + EWF is corrupting my SSD?

    No, when EWF is enabled nothing can write to disk it's all comitted to the filter cache in RAM, and in RAM (REG) mod some data goes in the Registry as well... Don't feel patronized here, but, your second post implies you might installing games after you've enabled EWF? That just won't work, nothing can write to disk, and you may be getting registry corruption in the process if you're in RAM (REG) mode... You have to disable EWF any time you want to make any changes to your Windows installation and any game or software you want installed on your system; not doing so will crash and fail as many game installation are physically larger then the amount of RAM on many systems...

    That's the theory, and i know all that, having used EWF on XP for years. My point is under win7, when i install games, which is an example of changes much larger than my available ram, the system DOESN'T freeze and crash. It just slows down.

    If that's the case what's your issue then?

    Like i said, i suspect it has something to do with my drive corrupting and i've wondering if anyone has tried making changes that are larger than their ram without commiting.
