I use Transcend 120-GB SSD drive with 1-TB HDD drive. My machine is DELL Inspiron-5567 (laptop). Ram 12-GB with 2-GB Swap Memory from the SSD drive.

Now I'm asking sir, can I use Trim Technology? And is there any disadvantage the TRIM Technology?


You can check to see if your ssd is trim active with this command

`sudo hdparm -I /dev/sda | grep TRIM`  

If trim is available on your ssd you will see an output similar to this.

Data Set Management TRIM supported

If it does you can benefit from setting up trim. In fact this whole article should work for you.

Just replace xed in the commands with gedit or whatever text editor you are using.
