    Hi all.

    I have just upgraded my ageing PC running W10 Home 64bit to a SanDisk SSD with a huge improvement in boot and response times. I have a reasonable idea as to what the TRIM facility does but one question nags. I can set TRIM to operate automatically at a preset period both in Windows and in the SanDisk dashboard.

    My question is should I use one method in preference to the other? Will the manufacturer’s version of TRIM be a better option than the generic Windows version? I hope this doesn’t sound too dumb. I have a good knowledge of computers but I am new to SSD’s. Thanks in advance.

      TRIM is built in to Windows since 7 and there is no need to use a 3rd party version. What you can do is confirm TRIM is working by following step 3 in the instructions here.

      cheers, Paul

      Hi Paul,

      Thanks for your reply. I have checked and TRIM is enabled so I will leave it to Windows.
