    Trim a New SSD?


    Several months ago I replaced my system disk with an SSD.

    NowI just installed a Sandisk 240g to replace an old HDD data disk on build 1703. I initialized and formatted it using Minitools Partition Magic as a GPT disk and copied my the data from the HDD to the new SSD. The system works faster but I wonder do I need to 'trim' it. I tried the TRIM command I have read about but I got a message saying that command was not recognized. Should I be worried? Do I need to do anything in addition to what I have done?

    Thank you.

    :)

    Bit Rate for Windows Movies and TV

    Windows movie and tv has an edit option in the lower right side of the scren when playing a movie. It looks like a pencil. There is an option to edit and trim. Select trim and it opens a new window.

    WIndows 10 should optimize the SSD on its own. To check right click on the drive, choose properties, tools, optimize. The drive should show as Solid state. You can click on the Optimize command and it should show that it's "trimming" the drive.

    To clarify, there is no such command as TRIM you need to do. You can't type it in anywhere.

    TRIM is a description of the effects that happen when a program tells your SSD to tidy itself up (and free deleted blocks for writing which on a new SSD is irrelevant).

    Press the *Start button and search for defragment and optimize drives. You'll see this screen:

    If it says "Solid state drive" under "Media type" then that is all you need to do - windows will issue the TRIM command during normal maintenance as it sees fit and you needn't do anything else at all.

    If you really want to you can go to a command prompt and run defrag (which will do TRIM for you) but there is normally no need.

    The command you would want is defrag /c /u and there is a tutorial about it here Optimize and Defrag Drives in Windows 10 Windows 10 Performance Maintenance Tutorials

    Thank you both ArnoldLayne and I0X7. Those were very helpful and I now have the warm fuzzies about TRIM.
