    If the system has correctly recognized the drive as SSD there is absolutely nothing you have to do manually. Windows does invoke Trim automatically when needed. No defrag, no manual trim, just use it.

    Yes, I also use SSD as it is and let OS take care of the maintenance.

    the question is has windows actually been able to take care of the maintenance of the os with reliability? apple's os x is very good at maintaining its self but I question if windows has matured enough to do so. I still use disk clean up and since I have a regular hard drive at the moment I still run disk defrag every week or 2

    Yes and no. Disk maintenance is OK, Defender is not bad either. One thing is outstandingly missing, proper program uninstaller. All uninstalling tasks are left to programs to do themselves and that usually leaves a lot of tails i the form of leftover files, folders and registry entries. There are third party programs like Revo Uninstaller that can take care of it.
