Wiper.exe for Indi's are much easier on the cells at it literally only cleans the cells that NEED to be cleaned.
Same goes for the manual option in the Intel Toolbox for gen 2.

Tony Trim is great for older SSDs that dont have either option....and/or you are running an older OS that isn't trim aware on a controller that is ONLY TRIM capable and doesn't have ITGC (or its ITGC is useless).
With all that being said....running Tony Trim once aint gonna matter (longevity wise) as its ONLY using 1 of the aprx 10,000 write cycles ;)
