I wanted to know if the Crucial M500 SSD which is a couple of years old support filevault 2? Does it also support TRIM?
I am assuming I will have to upgrade to the lastest El Capitan version
SSDs are a lot of money and I wanted to be sure before purchasing one.

thanks

FileVault 2 doesn't care what device you're using. It works as well with a spinning hard disk as with any SSD, though there's likely a performance penalty with a hard disk. You'll be fine with the M500.
