The Intel® SSD Optimizer function in Intel® SSD Toolbox is used to optimize the SSD using TRIM functionality on any Intel® SSD detected by the Windows® system. However, if the Intel® SSD 730 has a bootable Linux partition, you can use Linux to run TRIM on that drive.
You can TRIM the SSD in Linux using the "fstrim" command on a schedule/manually, or you can also do it mounting the filesystem with the "discard" option. We have checked multiple sources and the concensus is to schedule a cronjob in order to run "fstrim" periodically. In external Linux websites, users mentioned that the discard option may actually have a performance impact.
