Intel 320 and Windows 7 Settings for Reliability

I have an Intel 320 80gb on Windows 7. I have upgraded to latest firmware, but am concerned about getting the infamous 8mb bug.

Does anyone know if emabling the Windows drive settings of: "Better Performance" and "Enable Write Caching" increase the likelyhood of getting the 8mb bug upon a power failure or system freeze/forced shutdown? (they are currently enabled by default).

Thanks!

I doubt that anybody knows the true cause of the 8mb bug (not even intel engineers).

But anyway, Windows 7 should automatically optimize settings for SSD (disable defrag, turn off indexing, enable trim, etc), so all you need to do is run WEI.

here's how:

Intel engineers must know the cause of the 8MB bug.... how else would they be able to issue a firmware to fix it?
