Hi,
Well if you don't trust magician then samsung ssd's shouldn't be used
The firmware does the trim operation which ultimately marks deleted blocks as writable thus your inquiry
I suppose you can do it the old fashion way or the way Crucial ssd support posted to me a while back
Enter your bios and let the machine sit over night.
The ssd has power but no activity this is when the firmware is supposed to do it's trim operation.

I don't agree that just cos I don't trust Magician I should not use Samsung SSDs. All I can do is quote ICIT2LOL who said:

I totally agree with him and as I said all I use the non-magical Magician software is to check speeds, which I do with a few other apps as well. Just comparing. Why do I swear so much against Magician - cos it wasn't the fw back then but the way Magician's desktop utility pushed it while in the desktop environment, which in turn bricked a whole lot of ssd's. So ... use with caution.
