Default RunCore 64 gig (for Mini 9) and TRIM support - 07-04-2009, 12:54 AM

Does the Runcore 64 gig for the Dell Mini9 have TRIM support? Or is that an OS specific thing that works with all SSDs?


Thanks

The OS and the SSD have to support the TRIM command.

In that case, does this particular SSD support the TRIM command?

FYI:

To determine if your SSD supports TRIM in Windows 7, open a console as Admin;

fsutil behavior query DisableDeleteNotify

If the console returns a '0', your drive supports TRIM and it is ENABLED.

If it returns '1', the file system has disabled TRIM for your drive. This means your drive's controller does not support TRIM.

I'm running Win7 RC on my Mini 9/Runcore32GB right now (switched after the OS X 10.5.8 sleep problem; I bounce back and forth often), and I ran the command above. It indeed returns a 0!

Thus, the RunCore drives for the Dell Mini 9 do support TRIM when running Windows 7, and possibly will if Snow Leopard supports TRIM (which it probably will, since MBAs and MBPs are coming with SSDs now).


Sold my Mini 9 for a larger netbook, one that's easier on my wrists and hands.
Current Machine: 2010 MacBook Pro 13", 2.4 GHz C2D, 4GB RAM, Win7 Pro x64/OS X 10.6.3

And I play with my girlfriend's Mini 10v ^_^.

Interested in using MATLAB on the Mini 10v? Check out my benchmarks!

Running "fsutil behavior query DisableDeleteNotify" on a Windows 7 machine that doesn't even have an SSD returns 0. So I don't think this is an accurate way of determining if the drive supports it or not.

It was demonstrated in another thread that this fsutil method is worthless for detecting TRIM support.

In that case, is there a better way to detect TRIM support?
