litm Posted September 10, 2013 Share Posted September 10, 2013 Hi there, it is not possible to schedule Trim command under Windows XP SP3. "The SSD TrIM service could not be started" message appears when i'm trying to schedule the command. Steps to reproduce: - Windows XP SP3; SSD Toolbox v188.8.131.52 (current version at the moment). - install SSD Toolbox -> launch CSSDT.exe -> click Optimize -> check "Scheduled TRIM" - answer Yes when requested to start the service ('The service is not running. Would you like to start it now') - that's it..."The SSD TrIM service could not be started" message appears. The reason. (From my understanding) the issue is caused by improper handling of SDSIM_CSSDT mutex. Trim could be scheduled in case if the mutex is destroyed manually (by closing its handle, for example, from Process Explorer). Could you check the issue described and fix it ? Please let me know if additional details would be helpful. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
