Automate trimming your SSD

If you want to manage your SSD trimming automatically, one simple way is to copy the attached file into /etc/cron.daily - needs to be done using sudo or with a file manager with root access to /etc

/etc/cron.daily/fstrim-ssd

#!/bin/bash
#this script is applied to SSD drives for sustained long-term performance and wear-leveling

LOG=/var/log/trim.log
echo "*** $(date -R) ***" >> $LOG
fstrim --all --verbose >> $LOG

Re: Automate trimming your SSD

I just use the discard mount option.  The SSD I have in my q4os box is an enterprise class, and is rated for something nuts at 1,747TB write life.  So I could fill it every day for several years and wouldn't reach the point where it's expected to fail.  Needless to say, write life doesn't concern me in the least.

Re: Automate trimming your SSD

Same here tlmiller, write life isnt a concern in general for most SSDs any more.
