    I have recently downloaded High Sierra and got SSD. I went to this site and its saying its $14.99 and free trial is for 14 days only. How to get it for free?

    You do not to buy anything or download anything, just type "sudo trimforce enable" it will reboot and your set. these type of software that's all they do with pretty interface, and some try to sell it. it's native to the OS!

    We don't exit out of applications in Mac OS, we Quit them. Just an observation, for future reference.

    So, if TRIM support says "No" on the system report, should I go ahead and download TRIM Enabler anyway and enable it? Or no?

    great video but its solid state drive not solid state hard drive i odnt know why but it drives me up the wall when people say this

    I already have an Apple SSD in my MacBook Pro and TRIM is enabled,  but I now want to add some external SSD's via Thunderbolt.  The question is, will this Trim Enabler program play well with Apple's on my internal SSD, or will I have two programs competing for TRIM functinality?

    Does this Trim Support app work with Yosemite?

    fyi, you have to purchase trim enabler for $10 now. Are there any free options?

    I'm uncomfortable turning kext-signing off.. Is it ultimately worth it to do that and enable TRIM?

    Thank you for the video.  
    Anything else I need to secretly do after my samsung evo ssd install?  I would have expected this to be written on the instructions that came with the SSD… >: l

    Thank you for your video I have a question the trim enable is just for SSD drive or also for regular HHD let me know than you

    Yes, can we delete the app or does it need to be installed to keep the TRIM enabled? thanks!


    (May 18, 2018 - 2:18 pm)

    Can I delete the app after enabling TRIM?


    (May 18, 2018 - 2:18 pm)

    No, TRIM is a specific SSD feature.
