So, you have bought yourself an SSD, but do not know if it supports TRIM or not? Do not worry, it is easy to find out. Just follow the following steps:
- Download and install the Intel SSD Toolbox.
- Run the Intel SSD Toolbox. If your drive is not an Intel SSD, the only option available will be "View Drive Information". Click that.
- Scroll down to Word 169 and look at the value for Bit 0 – Data Set Management Supported. if this is 1, you have TRIM. If 0, you don’t.
See it was easy. Let me know if it worked for you.
