TRIM Check: Overview of an essential SSD TRIM functionality tester
If you have ever wondered whether TRIM actually works on your SSD or not, look no further. There is a little freeware utility now available that simplifies TRIM functionality testing.

Final Thoughts

 

TRIM Check fills a much-needed gap in the arsenal of SSD owners.

 

With Intel rolling out TRIM compatibility for RAID configurations, this little program could become an instant hit among RAID users in the near future. But even if RAIDing SSDs is not your thing, this program can still be very useful.

 

As I mentioned before there have been cases where certain programs use cheap workarounds that cripple TRIM to ensure SSD compatibility. In such cases the fsutil command will show that TRIM is enabled, regardless if it really works or not. With TRIM Check, you will know for sure.

 

It's important to note that we have heard some reports that this software doesn't work on all drives at this stage. Keep checking for updates to the software over time.

 

I would like to extend a big thanks to the author Vladimir Panteleev for taking the time to code this program, and for making it available for free. You can find the latest version here.
