How to Make The Most Out of M.2 NVMe SSD

Using M.2 NVMe SSD to upgrade your computer is the best decision for the high performance of your system. However, to sustain high performance, proper maintenance is essential.


This device has two essential parts that contribute to its high speed. They are a flash controller and the NAND flash memory. They are optimized to give great read/write performance in unsystematic and sequential data fetching within a very short time. The parts do not move. As a result, there is no spinning or breaking.


Sourcing a quality M.2 NVMe PCIe SSD from a reliable and experienced manufacturer is highly recommendable. Here are some tips that will enable you to get the best out of M.2 NVMe SSD.


1. Defragmentation

The effect of defragmentation on an SSD is negative. In other words, it is not necessary and can affect the lifespan of the SSD. Your SSD can randomly read any data from any location.


Though in HDD, you can use defragmentation to improve performance, but it is not necessary for M.2 NVMe SSD because it will adversely affect the drive. After all, the SSD can read data quickly from any location irrespective of where it is.


2. Avoid the use of M.2 NVMe to full capacity

It is advisable to allow 10 – 25% of the storage space for high performance. One important thing to note is that it is very easy for SSD to write in the presence of free space.


When it is used to full capacity, it chokes the drive when writing. The SSD will be struggling to check the blocks that are partially filled, move the information to the cache, and finally write the information back to it. It is good to maintain a balance between space utilization and performance.


3. Trim Command

Trim is an instruction that permits an operating system to notify an SSD which block of data can be cleaned internally as it is considered no longer in use. Trim stops the drive from being overused and making irrelevant writes.


Having in mind that SSD can only write on an empty block, it is necessary to free space for effective performance. However, some operating system does not support trim command. Windows detect TRIM during installation. Apple does not support it on third-party SSDs.


4. Avoid Storing Large Files

Remember that M.2 NVMe PCIe SSD is not a storage media device but a storage protocol and communication interface. Data that should be stored on it should be the ones you need to access frequently. Program and operating system files are good here.


Do not use it to store movies or a collection of music. It will not give the best performance you expected. Moreover, space will fill up easily. Keep the SSD free from irrelevant files.
