    Hi i have a older OCZ agility 3 250gb that has quite a bit of wear and tear that has been slowed down to 100 megabytes read and write in osx. in widows 8.1 it reads at 150 and writes at 100. Even after a format the drives is still pegged with slowness. I want to know if theres any way in osx to help restore some of the speed it used to have. It's currently out of my machines that are all sata III.

    Yes... enable TRIM with the TRIM Enabler app. Then reboot to single user mode and enter the command "fsck -fy" (without the quotes). This will TRIM all unused space on the SSD and hopefully speed things up. Type in reboot afterwards.
