A week ago I added an external SSD Drive (NVME) over USB-3 to my 2014 Mac Mini to boot from. The results are marvelous, although I just discovered I can install the drive internally via PCIe with faster results, while keeping the regular hard drive and can enable TRIM (can’t over USB). The question is:
- Does TRIM work retroactively to “fix” or “organize” the activities from the past TRIM-less week?
- Should I re-clone my original pre-SSD data again and start fresh with TRIM enabled?
- Should I just install my drive internally, enable TRIM and just keep going from here?
