I read the question in regards to installing Ubuntu with Wubi on an SSD ( How do I enable Trim on an SSD in a Wubi install under Windows 7? ).

My Windows installation is on an SSD (C: drive). My question is, if I choose to let Wubi install Ubuntu on my D: drive (HDD), thus creating the root.disk-file on D:, would I need to worry about TRIM in any way? I would assume not, but I just want to be sure.

You won't be using the C: drive unless you mount it on purpose. –  bcbc Dec 15 '12 at 22:08
I don't worry about TRIM, period. I have read convincing arguments for both using it and just not worrying about it. It's just a hard drive, probably under warranty. Keep backups and let the manufacturer worry about any failure & replacement. –  Tom Brossman Dec 15 '12 at 22:18
