Re: Buggy Intel SSD 520 Series SSD Firmware

I know about that, but appears that that may indicate that a TRIM only happens when you delete files. What about an overwrite of a file?

Overwrite doesn't happen with NAND flash. it must be deleted and written in other blocks...

Here's a nice article that might help explain the difference between TRIM, and Garbage collection.

Due to wear leveling you don't ever overwrite

overwriting nand is very slow and time consuming so instead it writes to a new location and marks the old for GC to clean up
