Anyone use this software with the Samsung 830 drive?
I'm just wondering if it's "safe" to use the 'performance optimization' option in the software? I've heard it performs TRIM functions within the software, and I guess helps keep the drive up to maximum performance. However, I'm not sure what is being run here - be it TRIM, defrag, etc.
I've used it twice now, since installing my 830, and after each time upon running the "performance optimization" function, my drive seems to perform much better on synthetic benchmarks, including the one that Samsung includes with the software.
And I've read TRIM functions at the log-off screen, and possibly desktop idle. I've tried to "log off" after my session, and also just leave it at desktop when I'm done, hoping TRIM will execute, but I can't be sure either way. Would it be a safe idea to maintain maximum performance, to use the "performance optimization" function within the Samsung software to keep up with the TRIM function, if it indeed does run that function?
Yes, I do have TRIM enabled. When I run "fsutil behavior query disabledeletenotify" from cmd, I receive "DisableDeleteNotify = 0", which from Sean's guide says TRIM is enabled.
Secondly, there's also a function called, "temporary file cleanup". Is this safe to execute as well?
