TRIM doesn't work on VirtualBox

Post by 70y-oldfart »

I'm running Linux Mint 21.3 on VirtualBox, with Linux Mint 20.1 as the host.
But TRIM doesn't seem to work on Virtualbox:

Code: Select all

xx@xx-Linux:~$ sudo fstrim -a
[sudo] password for xx:    
fstrim: /home/xx: the discard operation is not supported
Is there anything I can do to get the discard operation supported?
