Keeping your SSD running fast

I've read that some SSDs slow down after a year.

Don't worry about it, if you have Win7, a single SSD, and it's a new one, it won't slow down significantly at all, that is until you fill it up beyond ~90%, then it might start slowing.


Don't allocate the last 10% of your SSD's raw capacity. That way, the TRIM routine will always have that space available to move data around for load-levelling.
