TRIM permits an operating system to pass information regarding blocks of data which are lying unused for several days and can be potentially removed internally. The TRIM command assists in managing the performance of Solid State Drives at a good state over the entire span of life of the hard drive. TRIM’s primary operation include getting rid of all unused data from SSD’s memory calls by making the SSD to function at its top speed. Since a memomry block is to be re-programmed, TRIM amends its functioning speed by getting rid of all unwanted data, thereby permitting SSD to perform write operation for new data without even the need to perform erase operations.
TRIM Support Requirements:
1. Windows 7 or Windows 8 / Windows 8.1
