Hi,

Finally got my SSD today and installed it. Did a fresh install of Lion and upgraded to Mavericks. Enabled TRIM in Terminal and rebooted. However, it still says in System Report, under SATA/SATA Express, that TRIM is disabled.

I've read that in Mavericks it may show that it is disabled when it is actually not, and you should do a before/after benchmark.

Is there another way?

SSD is the Samsung 840 Evo 500g.

Thanks,
Sebastian

Terminal might be a bit dodgy in enabling TRIM sometimes.

Download Cindori's TRIM Enabler and you'll be fine.

Trim Issue - Solved

I can help you and this works. Go to:

http://www.cindori.org/software/trimenabler/

Download Trimenabler, install it, click the switch to enable trim.

I have the exact same drive just the 1TB. I bought 2 so my Mac Pro has 2TB now, 2 separate drives. This worked so easily...no editing in Terminal required.

Enjoy :cool:

That was what I just said in my post above yours - use TRIM Enabler from Cindori.
