    Because you have the intel x-25m ssd, i suggest the Rapid Storage Technology 9.6
    http://downloadcenter.intel.com/SearchResult.aspx?lang=eng&ProductFamily=Chipsets& ProductLine=Chipset+Software&ProductProduct=Intel% C2%AE+Rapid+Storage+Technology+(Intel%C2%AE+RST)

    mentioned from tweaktown ssd article:
    TweakTownÂ’s Solid State Drive Optimization Guide Introduction :: TweakTown



    So you might as well upgrade anyways as now it supports TRIM, even in RAID 0 and RAID 1 arrays.

    I just got in a WD 2tb and had the same problem with the msachi driver, updated to the driver above and it seems fine now.
    Thank you so much. I couldn't find this info anywhere for so long. Installed Intel RST and hope it cures the problems. :)

    They worked brilliantly! No more disappearances and I couldn't be happier. Cheers! :D

    Offtopic: HD Sentinel shows that my Intel SSD has 1 bad sector. I don't know how this could've happened, it wasn't there for ~2 months. Is it a point of worry? Is it a false report? For some reason it bothers my pedantic mind.

    Great to hear, thanks for posting back to let us know!

    You can ignore what apps say for sectors on SSD's these issues are well known and are errors because they were not made to read SSD info

    Anytime!

    Hopefully someday soon all the hard drive apps will be updated to see/deal with SSD's properly, but for now we just have to wait and ignore various things they report
