    Here is some of the heresay about Win7:

    TRIM commands are sent when:
    -- About 2/3 of partition is filled up, when file is (really) deleted,
    not when merely sending file to trash bin.
    -- In the above case, when trash bin gets emptied.
    -- In the above case, when partition is deleted.

    So the behaviour may vary, depending upon how full the filesystem is
    at any point in time.
