    I just bought the Samsung 830 128GB SSD and I want to enable TRIM in OS X Mountain Lion.

    Some sites claim that this is the correct command line:

    sudo cp /System/Library/Extensions/IOAHCIFamily.kext/Contents/PlugIns/IOAHCIBlockStorage.kext/Contents/MacOS/IOAHCIBlockStorage /System/Library/Extensions/IOAHCIFamily.kext/Contents/PlugIns/IOAHCIBlockStorage.kext/Contents/MacOS/IOAHCIBlockStorage.original


    While others claim that this is the right command line:

    sudo cp /System/Library/Extensions/IOAHCIFamily.kext/Contents/PlugIns/IOAHCIBlockStorage.kext/Contents/MacOS/IOAHCIBlockStorage /IOAHCIBlockStorage.original

    Which is it?

    I am not saying that you are wrong, but I have seen on some forums that people had problems with Trim enabler application... Something to do with slow system boot and some other problems.

    I've never had any issues with TRIM enabler. You just have to keep up with new versions (system updates will disable it).

    The guy that does the app is a regular poster here, I think.

    No issues with Trim Enabler whatsoever.

    I am glad that it worked... Well, why shouldn't it;)
    You just have to remember that you need to repeat the procedure after OSX updates... From 10.8.2 to 10.8.3 and so on...
