Trim for SSD Question


Extraordinary Member
I have a new system with an SSD. I am running Windows 7 64 bit. Now my question is this. I know that 7 is supposed to handle Trim on the SSD when the system is idle. First of all will a screen saver be ok? Also how do I know Trim is in fact working?

I am not an expert and have to get my info from Newegg videos on the subject.

But they say, to see if TRIM is working, your can do the following:

Open an Administrative command prompt.

Type fsutil behavior query DisableDeleteNotify

If it returns a DisableDeleteNotify = 0 then trim is working.

They also go into what TRIM needs to work, such as using AHCI or RAID for the SATA controller.....
