I want to check TRIM is enabled. All websites say open CMD as administrator, then type in: fsutil behavior query DisableDeleteNotify. All sites say I should then get the following notification (see attached file one: "trim check notification"). But I always get (see file 2 "what I get"). Don't know if TRIM running or not? Please help.

Hello,


Result of zero (0), then it means that TRIM is enabled, and no further action is required. Looks like you're good.

Thanks
zep :)

if after running the command you see a result of one (1), then it means that TRIM is disabled.

Hi Zep, 

Thanks for replying. Clearly it's great news if TRIM is enabled and I don't have to do anything. I get the bit about the zero, but please explain why my laptop (2nd screenshot) has the word "disabled" in brackets after the zero ... given I'm looking to ensure TRIM is NOT disabled.

Thanks, Simon

NTFS DisableDeleteNotify = 0 (Disabled) > Means > TRIM support enabled for SSDs with NTFS
ReFS DisableDeleteNotify = 0 (Disabled) > Means > TRIM support enabled for SSDs with ReFS

NTFS DisableDeleteNotify = 1 (Enabled) > Means > TRIM support disabled for SSDs with NTFS
ReFS DisableDeleteNotify = 1 (Enabled) > Means > TRIM support disabled for SSDs with ReFS

NTFS DisableDeleteNotify is not currently set > Means > TRIM support for SSDs with NTFS is not currently set, but will automatically be enabled if SSD with NTFS is connected.
ReFS DisableDeleteNotify is not currently set > Means > TRIM support for SSDs with ReFS is not currently set, but will automatically be enabled if SSD with ReFS is connected.

These are how the commands above read out, the word disbled can be confusing but in this case disabled does not mean trim is disabled. It means it's enabled as the output commands show.

It looks like something has to be disabled in order to enable Trim....
