You plug in a SSD formatted with FAT, via SATA.

Will win7 do TRIM?

Win7 does support TRIM. What kind of SSD do you have? Make and model.

I wasn't aware of file system requirements for TRIM. Unless I'm uninformed, you should be fine.

Yeah as far as I can tell it's file system independent. There is no reason that I can see why it wouldn't work. It's more about the disk controller and OS support, which if it's SATA you should be good to go so long as the drive itself supports TRIM.

Why would an SSD be formatted with FAT? Old, pre-WinXP SP2, maybe? You would want to use NTFS instead unless you had a really good reason.
