    Howdy,

    I have a summer 2009 13" MBP running 10.6.8. One of the custom upgrades I got through the Apple website was a SSD. Best upgrade ever! Even without TRIM, this drive has convinced me to never go with an internal HDD again.

    BUT

    Now that TRIM is enabled for Apple SSDs under the lastest SL update, I'm wondering why my SSD profile is showing "No" under TRIM support. I don't want to have to use TRIM Enabler, but maybe my SSD just really doesn't support TRIM?!

    Any help is greatly appreciated.

    Do I have to use that? Does my SDD not support TRIM?

    External HDDs. Can't live without 'em.

    SSD that supports TRIM without any software on the OS is the ones with the sandforce controllers, apple SSD does not have that :[


    if yours does not have a sandforce, then yes, you must use TRIM enabler to uhm well enable TRIM

    me either even with a 500GB i still need externals

    Some older SSDs don't support TRIM regardless if you use the enabler or not.
