    hey, noticed my ssd going slower, so im wondering if theres anything i can do to speed it up? will a format work? is recondition software good enough?

    also, what settings should i use for sleep
    should i disable hibernation entirely?
    what do you recommend

    Space doesn't sound like the problem. What are your specs and how are you measuring your speed?

    its on
    forgot to mention that

    any other tips ya suggest?

    ----------

    plextor m5 pro
    came installed with the latest firmware

    ----------

    installed the os twice
    put 100 gigs on the hd
    set trim

    ran black magic disk test
    i recall hitting 420/499(might have scored higher, wasn't paying much attention cause i thought it was a long test :O)
    it probably ran 40-50 times in total :<

    last time i tried it, i was getting 240-488!

    would like to recondition this drive or restore to factory, so i can have a fresh start. will definitely not make the same mistakes(running benchmarks, keeping hibernation on, etc)

    Silly question....
    Did you notice the performance degrading before running your benchmarks?

    Try this... boot your Mac in Single User Mode by holding command-s while booting. At the resulting command prompt enter "fsck -fy" (without the quotes) then hit enter. This will TRIM all unused blocks on the drive. Then type reboot. Done.
