Periodic SSD trimming can improve SSD write performance and also extend SSD lifetime so don’t miss out on this video!
SSD trimming also has a few downsides and I’ll quickly go through them as well.
I hope I didn’t get too technical explaining all of the NAND memory quirks. If I did, feel free to fast forward directly to around 5 minute mark where I show how to enable fstrim in…
