TRIM

Postby DrTeeth » Sat May 18, 2019 8:03 am

I am just wondering why the TRIM button does not work in BIBM, but
does so in the IfL Partition Work module. Can it be fixed in BIBM?

Did you select the "BIOS (direct)" option first?

Yes. I am not the only one here who has this issue. A friend mentioned
that he has the issue and suggested that I use partition work in IfL,
which does work.

you need bios (direct) for it to work, bios direct drops back to bios if it
doesn't work, you can tell if it works as the name of the device is listed.
After that, the drive has to report it supports trim.

I see. Just out of interest, how come IfL has no trouble trimming my
partitions? I am asking out of interest and not to be "funny".

All drives are SATA 3 connected to SATA 3 ports. The OS drive is SSD,
the others HDs

The same as BIOS. I can take photos of any screens if you like.

DrT,

When I select BIOS (direct) the Drives field changes to show Drive manufacturer, Model number and Size. Trim works but not for the Win10 1903 partition. The counter remains on 0%. Trim works for Win10 1809 and other partitions. Trim doesn't work for the Win10 1903 partition in IFL PartWork either (MBR system). Trim does work for the Win10 1903 partition in IFL PartWork in my UEFI system.

I'm using the latest TeraByte software.

Correction. I tried trimming 1903 in BIBM again. It moved off 0% after 100 seconds and was finished in 11 minutes. Slow.
