It appears unnecessary to utilize the vendor’s software for trimming. However, while there is confidence that Windows 10 trim function is operational, the “enable trim” checkbox in the WD Dashboard is unchecked, leaving uncertainty about the true status of trim.

As a result, the preferred method for verifying trim status is through online means:

fsutil behavior query DisableDeleteNotify

The outcome is “0 (disabled)” indicating that trim is activated. It’s uncertain if this information is sufficient, and it’s unclear why there isn’t a user interface to display such vital details.

Additionally, there’s a query regarding whether Windows will perform trim when a complete partition is deleted?
