    SSD Trim Question


    Hi There

    Wondering if SSD Trim does it autoly with Windows Maintenance task? or if I should run that manually weekly, I set in the SSD dashboard, Enable Trim, Weekly for the schedule, but not sure if it ran, states under it last run none. Very very new to SSD drives, first one I ever had in a system. In addition If Avast updates again at end of March, and hopefully goes well, but if not, is it bad having to remove it with removal tool, and reinstall cleanly that have to do sometimes to fix issues program may have.

    Click on the start icon, type Optimize, click on the app at the top of the list, "Defragment and Optimize Drives". That will tell you when Windows last ran trim on the SSD. Don't worry about the recovery partition that never gets optimized, it never needs to be optimized (Windows will always erroneously report that it does).

    Oh ok, yeah I didn't click the Optimize button in there, says needs it, but I didn't click it. Guess it does sometime, I do let PC idle when I watch hour long tv shows, so thinking that should be enough for auto maintenance to take care of anything needed done

    It takes about 15 seconds to run trim on an SSD.

    Oh ok, not a big deal then

    Reason wondered was having performance issues in one of the games, Firestorm (3rd party) secondlife viewer, cases of extreme lag at times, might be more internet related, do have a Puma 6 Chipset Gateway that supposedly has lag spikes at times, But thinking drives fine, it's just net related really I think

    I don't think that trim or lack thereof is causing those problems.

    Yeah probably Internet Related, Possibly Related to Avast even, not really sure at the moment what the exact cause is

    You can suspend Avast during gaming and check internet ping too.

    Yeah Ping to the one sim in the game statistics showed 1439ms, after relog went down to 33ms, Did have Avast Silent mode activated, proper exclusions for the game added to Avast (got that from Secondlife/FIrestorm support, been running Avast since 2006, so used to the program for the most part, time or time issues, but usually can solve those hopefully
