With Trim Enabler, you can bring trim to any Solid State Drives. Trim is must-have feature for most SSDs. It not only increases data writing speeds, but it increases the lifetime of the SSD itself. It's as easy as flipping a switch.

What's New

Version 3.2.5:
  • Trim Enabler can now disable kext signing in order to enable Trim on Yosemite
  • Fixed an issue with Trim Enabler not launching on the OS X 10.10 beta

Requirements

  • OS X 10.7.0 or later

Version 3, which is a menu bar applet, misses an obvious interface element to quit the applet when I don't need it any more (cmd-q works when the menu is open).
Haven't registered to try the pro features, but basic options seems to more...

Well, 3.2.5 still does not work with Yosemite beta. The app launches, at least, but I still cannot reboot after activating Trim. I had to reinstall Yosemite, again. I'm getting a lot of practice reinstalling the OS, though.

A query to those who know more about TRIM and SSDs than I do:
I have a MacBook Air 2012 that came with SSD so I understand (correctly?) that there is no need for 3rd party TRIM as it is enabled with Apple devices? I ask as the System Information does not list TRIM as an option under the Storage tab.

I do have an external SanDisk 128GB SSD that I use for Time Machine. I believe (from what I have read here and elsewhere) that I should install TRIM for this external SSD. As with the internal SSD, System Information does not list TRIM as an option under the Storage tab for the external SSD.

Am I correct in my understanding? If someone who is more conversantwith TRIM could answer, I would be thankful, and I suspect others would be also.

Is there anyway to check Apple support (or otherwise) for TRIM on SSD on MacBook Air? Thanks

It will be enabled as it's an Apple supplied drive. So no need for software like this to enable it.
System Information shows TRIM support under SATA/SATA Express and then the drive name. It's not shown under Storage even though it does seem more obvious.

thanks Gazzmanzx6 - appreciate your help.
Am I correct that I can use TrimEnabler for my external SanDisk?

Sorry can't help with that one. I don't have an external SSD drive.

If you have SoftRAID, it can enable TRIM on 3rd party SSDs.

Nice pickup. Thanks. Does this apply to non-SoftRAID volumes, though?

Support for hardware RAID depends completely on the RAID card/controller. Generally, they don't support Trim.

Version 3.2.1 was unusable on my Mac Pro 2010 with 10.9.2 (immediate crash). The current version does not have this issue anymore and now everything works as expected. Thanks!

Hi, this is a bug with the 3.2.1 version and OSX 10.7.
Please downgrade to 3.1.3 while I sort this out.
3.1.3 can be downloaded here:

V. 3.2.1 crashes on my Mac Pro 2010 (10.9.1) - EXC_BREAKPOINT (SIGTRAP). Surprisingly, the previous version works fine...

Hi, please create a topic on the support forums (groths.org/forums) where you detail the error and what system you are using.

Diarbyrag,

Short answer...the preponderance of evidence is that TRIM would improve performance of the SSD, that is, provided, as in your case, you have a thunderbolt connector.

3.2 had a glitch and 3.2.1 is out which fixes the problem.

Are Trim enablers necessary for the newer SSD's drives? Presently, I have a LaCie 120GB SSD and the LaCie tech support indicated it is not needed.....is that correct?

FYI....the issue with a SSD with a USB connector is that the SSD will not be recongized by the Mac and hence no support....see full reponse:



If we are talking about P9223 SSD on Mac..

SSD itself supports TRIM.
But through USB 3.0 device is not seen as SSD so no TRIM support in USB 3.

Through TBT, SSD is recognized by OS, so TRIM may work but Mac OS does NOT support TRIM on EXTERNAL SSD BY DEFAULT.

With TRIM enabler Mac OS should manage TRIM on the external SSD. (but remember you "force" the OS to do something "special" that it is not supposed to do ...)



Thank you, and please let me know if you have any further concerns.

ie. short answer needed > is it required/does it help or is it a waste of time on new macs, I have new MacBook pro late 2013 & LaCie 120GB ssd rugged drive
