How to run TRIM

Havae just fitted a Crucial M4 and it is running like a misile, but cannot find out if it is runnig TRIM.

A Google told me to run "fsutil behavior query disbaledeletenotify" but after a brief flash of the screen nothing happens. Am I doing something wrong.

Hi,

Did you open the CMD as administrator?

Elevated Command Prompt

Golden

EDIT : Thanks to the admin/mod that dropped that tutorial in here for me :-)

TRIM is enabled by default for SSD's, so you should be good to go

And enjoy your new M4

Yeah Golden & Dwarf sorry late reply yep have tried both ways and same result.

When you say Administrator just so I have it exactly right I take it you mean my status in the UAC settings? I'm the only one using this machine right now (or likely to).

You must right click on the Command prompt icon (located in Start Menu/All Programs/Accessories) and select Run as administrator.

Hi,

Right-click on CMD. There will be an option to 'Run as adminstrator' - select that. Now you running CMD as administrator.

You can also access it by:

Click Start Orb
In search box, type cmd
Right-click on cmd, and then select the 'Run as administrator' option that appears.

Golden
