The Intel® SSD Optimizer runs the Windows* TRIM command on supported SSDs. This functionality can also be run through Windows directly using the following steps (The example below is for Windows® 10):
- Open the Start Menu.
- Type Optimize to search for the application.
- Click Defragment and Optimize Drives, Open or Run as Administrator to launch the application.
- Click the drive to be optimized to select it.
- Click Optimize to initiate the process (administrator privileges required).
|Note||Windows 10 will take care of this optimization automatically depending on the default schedule, which can be changed after clicking on Change settings.|
Alternatively, download the latest version of Intel® Memory and Storage Tool (GUI) to use the Optimizer feature.
