When RAID goes bad

What manages the wear on SSDs used in RAID: RAID software, SSD Toolbox, TRIM, or nothing? It would be nice if the drives were used-up at the same rate. of course, I would install SSD Toolbox and allow it to run a regular TRIM schedule.

Hello paramountain,

The Intel® Rapid Storage Technology will monitor the HDD and SSD inside of a RAID volume. If you have the Intel® Toolbox installed, it also will be monitoring the Intel® SSD even when having the Intel® Rapid Storage Technology installed as both programs are independent.
