Trim command on old system


Recommended Posts


For some reasons, I have to use a ssd with XP and fat32. I use smart defrag 5 and it manually "trim" my fat32 partitions. It takes ages, about 10mn on a 30gb partition, but it seems to work. I don't care to wait such a long time (can do it once a week), the only thing I'd like to know is if it really works with my system (xp, fat32). Please don't don't tell to upgrade with windows 7,8.1,10 - not my question, sure you understand. Thank you

Thank you. Actually I'm wondering if precisely Smart Defrag's Trim works with fat32 and if waiting 10 minutes with a non AHCI system is normal. Other software can trim with xp, manufacturer's toolboxes etc. Even with fat32, some claim to do that : O&ODefrag for example. But in their doc they stipulate that even a non AHCI system with xp can be trimmed, because of the minutes it takes, they consider it inacceptable. For me, it's very much acceptable, I don't care. So my question is, as mentionned above : Can you confirm Smart Defrag's manual Trim works with fat32 and with a non AHCI system, even if I have to wait minutes? Thank you for your specific answer. Best regards, muzungu.
