    Is there a way to check integrity of my SSD?

    I have random app crashes sometimes, and 95% of the time I load Diablo 3 it freezes. None of this happens on my Macbook air which is older but also has an SSD.

    I'm using TrimEnabler to enable trim support, but i'd like to check to make sure there's no issues with my SSD, or if it's failing, etc..

    just use disk utility and verify it to see if any problems pop up

    I did and nothing comes up.. just seeing if there's anything more in depth than that app.

    There are paid apps like Disk Warrior that do more in depth scanning.

    I've been using a freeware trim enabler but I guess I'll have to give drivedx a try as well. BTW, no issues since installing my Samsung EVO 840 SSD and enabling TRIM. I just want to be prepared...

    I like this app alot.. It routinely checks health, sends you an a status email, or an email based on what you define in the app.

    I had to install some driver to check SMART on my usb drive that I use for Time Capsule, but now I can see if that drive's failing also. Guess writing to it all day every day has decreased it's life by about 25%.. now I can plan accordingly!
