TRIM enabled on 840 EVO only if Samsung Magician running?
My second day after replacing old HD with 840 EVO 500GB - amazing! Trying to learn about optimizing, etc. Running Windows 7 x64, drive on (unfortunately) Marvell 9128 controller using Microsoft AHCI driver. I do have rapid mode enabled.
fsutil inquiry shows TRIM enabled in Windows, but trimcheck utiltity shows TRIM WORKING only when Magician is running. If I quit Magician, trimcheck shows TRIM NOT WORKING. I cannot find anything anywhere that suggests that Magician itself can enable TRIM.
Whether the Marvell 9128 controller can ever pass through TRIM is an internet subject of controversy, very confusing...
Does this make sense? Can anyone explain it?
