SSD Maintence

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I have been doing some research on how to maintain my SSDs, however I am having trouble figuring out how to maintain the SSD in my MacBook Air (2010).

From what I have read, OSX does not have support for TRIM and I am unsure what I can do to keep it running in great shape.

Also, I am using Boot Camp for Windows 7. Can I run TRIM support in the Windows 7 Partition?

Any help are input would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks!

This should help you with the windows 7 part of it: http://www.overclock.net/ssd/700470-...ows-7-ssd.html

as for the mac, I can't really help you.

You probably know this, but just to be sure... don't ever defrag your SSD... some noobs might tell you to do so, but that's the biggest goofy anybody can do with an SSD


ah, you can run trim in the 7 partition. To check if it's running:
"At a command prompt (start/run/cmd), type the following: fsutil.exe behavior query DisableDeleteNotify

It should respond back with DisableDeleteNotify=0 if trim support is ready and active. If it is not, type fsutil.exe behavior set DisableDeleteNotify 0"

refer to the link I posted for more advanced stuff


edit: this forum is somewhat "anti-mac" so your odds of finding a good answer to your OS X problem are better if you stick to google or another forum

I'll have to find the link, but I saw a recent article by a reputable tech/computer hardware site tested OS X's ability to deal with SSDs and garbage collection since OS X doesn't support trim yet. The conclusion was rather surprising -- after many years (simulated through strenuous tests and drive fills over a few days) the SSDs were hardly Amy slower than when they were brand new.

But since you're using widows, it negates that.
