some people have been asking for some new functions for TRIM Enabler, I am working on this. It will include Disable button, automatic updates, and will also fix the issue some people have had with longer boot times.

one thing to remember is that some SSD need a firmware upgrade before TRIM will work, so if it still doesnt work for you, check manufacturers website. make sure the disk supports TRIM at all.

    I installed the Trim patch and my drive now reports to support Trim, so that’s nice. However I would like to know if there are any subsequent steps that I need to do in order to benefit from Trim support, or whether that is done automatically.

    I’m downloading the program (and the 10.6.7 update).
    I’ve a question. How to check if the trim is working?
    It’s enough the “TRIM support: Yes” line?
    There is another way to check it?

    Thank you

    Thanks for posting this. Unfortunately, I’m seeing issues and would like to uninstall the patch. I see that you plan a version of your tool that uninstalls/disables it automatically. In the mean time, could you post the steps needed to back out the patch?

    Hi, it would really be great if you can deploy a version with a disable function. I did the patch and TRIM works, but the speed of the ssd decreases enormiously. Its a OCZ Vertex II. And I really like to bring the settings without using trim, speed is more important 🙂
    Thank you very much!

    I have installed a new Samsung Model 470 SSD 256 GB Drive in my new 2011 uni-body MacBook Pro 15″. Will this Trim Enabler work for me?

    Hi. I have just installed a Samsung 840 series and am now using it with Trim Enabler. However Samsung has its own Garbage Collection. Does Trim Enabler automatically disable the GC? Thanks.
