The methods comprise: queuing a first I/O operation and first TRIM operation in a first list of operations, analyzing the first TRIM operation for a plurality of block portions of a disk cache to determine a size thereof, estimating a first amount of time to complete the first TRIM operation, comparing the first amount of time to a first threshold value, selectively dividing the first TRIM operation into at least a second TRIM operation for first block portions contained in the plurality of block portions and at least a third TRIM operation for second block portions contained in the plurality of block portions, if the first amount of time is greater than the first threshold value, performing the first I/O operation followed by the second TRIM operation, and queuing the third TRIM operation in a second list of operations.
