I recently purchased a new PC running Windows 7 Ultimate fitted with a SSD. I wanted to check if TRIM was enabled so ran the following at a command prompt:-
"fsutil behavior query disabledeletenotify"
It returned the following message:-
"The FSUTIL utility requires that you have administrative privileges"
My login does have admin rights. There are only two logins on the PC and it is only one with admin rights.
What do I need to do?
I HAVE JUST FOUND THE SOLUTION. I opened the User Account Control (UAC) and turned it off. After re-booting I entered the above fsutil command. It returned a value of "0" which means that the TRIM command is enabled. I then restored the UAC to the default setting.
If it had been turned off (the value would have been 1) I could have entered:-
fsutil behavior set disabledeletenotify 0
and this would have turned it on.
