    So I trimmed a few roms a while back with ndstokyotrimmer, but now I dont remember which ones they were.

    Now I have some new roms and I want to trim them, so I want to just try and trim the whole lot cause I dont remember which roms are trimmed and which roms arent.. If i trim already trimmed roms what happens?

    There
    Nothing,it's already trimmed after all.

    Also non-trimmed roms are usuall 8,16,32,64,128.... megabytes in size.

    Simply put... NDSTokyoTrim will trim the ROMS the 'proper' and safe way.
    If the ROM is already trimmed or there is nothing to trim, it will not touch it.

    There should be zero risk of attempting to trim a previously trimmed ROM with NDSTokyoTrim.

    It's called a double trim and when you run the game it opens a dimensional vortex that swallows you DS.

    Really? I'm pretty sure there's something wrong with your trimmer if such thing happens on your end.

    Even if the trimming tool tries to trim it anyway, nothing will happen. All trimers do is remove all the unneeded FF's (255's in decimal) from the end of the file
