Hello, I’m trying to confirm whether or not TRIM is actually working on my system and I can’t find any definitive answers.

 

I’m on a new Asus G750JZ-DB73, which has dual 128 GB SSDs in RAID0. I’ve heard that TRIM was incompatible with RAID, but I’ve also seen recent reports claiming that newer drives or motherboards or whatever did allow for TRIM with RAID drives. My knowledge if techese is limited, so I’m unsure what to believe.

 

Secondly, I’ve encrypted my SSD(s) using DiskCryptor without issue, and DiskCryptor claims full compatibility with both RAID and TRIM.

 

Here’s where I get confused. Both CrystalDiskInfo and the “fsutil behavior query DisableDeleteNotify” command in Command Prompt indicate that TRIM is enabled on my system. However, when I use TRIMcheck, I’m informed that TRIM doesn’t appear to be working.

 

How can I conclusively verify if TRIM is working for me? And if it isn’t, is there a way to activate it on my system?

 

Thanks in advance.

 

EDIT: The SSD is a SanDisk SD5SE2256G1002E.

You can download AS SSD and it will tell you if TRIM is enabled or not.


All is well in Paradise.

I just ran AS SSD and I'm not seeing any TRIM-related information at all. Is there something specific you need to do or look at?
