I've seen TRIM for your SSD described as a disk defragmentation, although I'm not sure that's entirely right, I can see where they are coming from.
As described by Wikipedia "In computing, a TRIM command allows an operating system to inform a solid-state drive (SSD) which blocks of data are no longer considered in use and can be wiped internally. While TRIM is frequently spelled in capital letters, it is a command name, not an acronym." For the less verbose among us, it's garbage collection and we want it switched on!
As described by GHacks.net, open a command prompt as Administrator and enter the following.
"fsutil behavior query DisableDeleteNotify"
A 1 or 0 will be returned. If you get a 1, run the following to correct it.
"fsutil behavior set disablenotify 0".
I will now be trying to look out for other computer/technical references that I can tie into the other 4 of the five sailing essentials, Balance, Sail Setting, Centre Board and my favourite Course Made Good.
