SSD TRIM Enable?
« on: April 09, 2019, 10:36:31 AM »
Have not checked this on Macs here that Iíve installed SSDs in -
but found this in my bookmarks just now while working on taxes.
As there have always been questions concerning TRIM with the SSDs
... thought perhaps someone  might want to check this out further?

And, this may only pertain to newer Macs.
If so, sorry for the waste of your time. ;)

Does anyone have an idea how to do this on an OS9-only system?

(where it's not possible to add TRIM; I read somewhere you should partition the disk at 90-98% of it's size to reduce the wear on it or something)

The best bet is to buy a drive that is under-provisioned and hope for the best. Under-provisioning basically does what hageir said, from the factory, leaving a chunk of the disk free for wear leveling. This is how it was handled before TRIM was developed for modern OSes. Look for drives that are slightly under "typical" capacities, ie 60gb instead of 64, 120 vs 128, 240 vs 256, etc.
