discard/trim your SD

Postby hede » Fri Oct 21, 2016 7:19 am

The Wandboards SD Slots seem to support trim/discard. This increases performance and lifespan of SD Cards - at least for Cards which support trimming, not all do so. I have several SanDisk SD cards and even if they look identical, not all of them support trimming.

If supported by the SD Card, I recommend using fstrim in regular intervals. Like with a cron job for example.
