Bob,

Start, All Programs, Accessories, rt click on Command Prompt and when it opens enter fsutil behavior query disabledeletenotify then press Return.
If the result is an 0 then TRIM is enabled.

There shouldn`t be a problem as Windows 7 software is written to enable the TRIM functionality of SSDs.
Have a read at http://www.tomshardware.com/news/win...-ssd,7717.html

open an elevated command prompt from the start menu by typing cmd and right click on the CMD in the upper menu. The select run as admin.

Type "fsutil behavior set disabledeletenotify 0" then "enter" after which TRIM will be working.

Response should be disabledeletenotify = 0

Alan,

Thanks for correcting an error in my posting where I omitted "Run as Administrator" after rt clicking on the Command Prompt. A senior moment!

Bob,

When you do have time to use Magician report back on how you get on wit it. Just interested.. Obviously I cannot use it as it`s Samsung specific.

What`s work? I retired when I was 54 (fortunately)

Will do Roger.

actually I retired early last year due to a back problem, so I don't have a job as such.
But I seem to be busier now than when I did..Lol

Anyway, the link to Tweak-SSD is https://www.totalidea.com/tweak-ssd.php#login.

I would suggest you purchase the full version, now slightly increased to £9.18.
It is very easy to use and takes you through the system optimisation step by step. The TRIM Performance Optimisation is the part you are actually paying for but is worth the money. The system optimisation is free.

Registration is needed to buy the full version and an activation code is emailed to you to let TRIM Optimisation take place. The software can also be updated if paid-for and I updated mine two days ago.

At the end of optimising you should achieve a System Optimisation Status of 100% as shown by an automatic slider. Mine showed 88% before optimising the TRIM function which then went to 100%.

Hi Roger,

I didn't use Samsung's Magician after all, (got a bit fuddled) I know you probably think it looks easy, but your more savy than me

In the end I had a look at your recommended SSD tweak and found it very straight forward , for a dummie. I ran through the freebee wizard and went with the recommendations etc and it actually increased by about 20% on the slider.
I then bought the upgraded version to optimise TRIM, but got a message - "Disabled because AHCI is not detected"???
Not sure why that is, any ideas?

Sorry to drag this out, I am a procrastinator.


BOB

Bob,

Hmmm, I wonder if it`s because you have a Samsung SSD whereas I installed a Crucial unit?
AHCI is not officially supported on OCZ SSDs, (not your make, I know) as can be seen at http://windows7forums.com/windows-7-...ahci-ssds.html. Same effect with yours, perhaps?

AHCI is normally enabled in the BIOS under the drive - cannot remember the details exactly. I couldn`t enable AHCI in my BIOS after having installed the SSD as I coluldn`t access the SATA drive (greyed out) to change the mode but using Topala`s siw System Analysis I found AHCI had been enabled automatically.

The link at http://www.ithinkdiff.com/how-to-ena...-installation/ tells you how to enable AHCI in Windows 7 RC after installation.

If you create a back-up of the registry then follow the instructions in the link carefully you possibly can enable AHCI. Worth a try in my opinion.
If it doesn`t work just restore the registry back-up.

What is the current reading for System Optimisation Status on the Tweak SSD slider?
