OS X - Enabling TRIM on Non-Apple

Enable TRIM for Non-Apple SSDs

TRIM is similar to defragmenting a hard drive, and Apple does not enable this by default in 3rd party SSDs. It is not clear why they do not, but probably because they would rather have you use theirs. In any case, if you would like to keep your SSD healthy, all you have to do is use Terminal with a command.

1. Open Terminal and copy and paste this into it:

sudo trimforce enable

2. Hit enter, and follow the prompts by pressing Y and enter each time.

3. It will reboot automatically, and you should be done!

It is that simple. Leave a comment if you have any questions!
