Enable trim support on Apple and third party SSD’s
Authored by: markbailey747 on Mar 29, '11 01:48:19PM

Enabled trim based on republished info posted on this past weekend. As for evidence that the TRIM command is working and aside from the sense that the disk is as fast as it has ever been, I downloaded a freeware program called Disk Drill to try and recover files I know that I deleted over the last few days. Disk Drill reported that there were "no deleted files found" that were available for recovery. This is pretty solid evidence that trashed files have been wiped from the SSD by the TRIM command. Of course there are a number of programs that are designed to help one recover accidentally deleted files. That said one might consider that backup should be made to a traditional rotary type hard disk if there is a potential need to recover such files, whereas if one wishes to ensure that deleted files are not to be recoverable then backup to another SSD (also with TRIM enabled, of course).
