Enable TRIM on your Windows 10 PC

SSD driver / SSD FirmwareIf you have an SSD drive then you will need to check if the TRIM function has been set. This becomes a bit of an issue with Windows 10 as the Intel SSD allows you to use the TRIM function on demand with its software however the Kingston SSD drive is a bit more complicated. You can set the TRIM function on Windows 10 and bypass the settings on the software than comes with the drive. You can also check if it has been set on your computer.

Checking the TRIM function in Windows 10

  • Use the Windows key + X keyboard shortcut to open the Power User menu and select Command Prompt (Admin)

Now you will need to copy the following line into the DOS prompt

  • fsutil behavior query DisableDeleteNotify

You will now see something like this on your computer as has been listed below.

  • trim windows 10

 

The fsutil command in Windows 10 will show you if the TRIM function on your hard drive is enabled. If it shows = 0 as it does above then your TRIM function is enabled but if it shows = 1 then the TRIM function is not enabled.

How to enable TRIM on Windows 10

  • Use the Windows key + X keyboard shortcut to open the Power User menu and select Command Prompt (Admin)

Now copy the following line next to the command prompt to enable TRIM on your drive

  • fsutil behavior set DisableDeleteNotify 0

If you wish to disable TRIM then you will need to copy and paste the following next to the command prompt.

  • fsutil behavior set DisableDeleteNotify 1

 

This is how the TRIM function in Windows 10 is either enabled or disabled. These will work with all SSD drives from the Intel SSD drive to the lesser known drives such as the Samsung SSD drives and the SANDISK SSD drive as well as the Samsung NVM driver.
