  1. I am not sure exactly what it is you think trim does.

    TRIM is a feature used to clear unused pages in ram blocks on a SSD, and so will not work on a HDD.
  2. i thought that trim will it deletes something it can simulations write new content to that same spot similar to the insert button
  3. Are you asking for an utility that can wipe a HDD for data or one that can make an image so you can move the data from one HDD to another (like for instance Acronis True Image)?

    TRIM is a "housekeeping" feature for SSDs

    HDD data is not internally organized into pages/blocks so the feature is 100% useless when used in conjunction with a normal HDD.
