PermaLink SSD Tuning Tips for Windows07/08/2011 12:54 AM
I've never heard anyone mention tweaking things to make your SSD better, so thought it'd be good to list these suggestions from an Intel Insight article:
- Turn off defragging (Windows 7 does this automatically but not older OSes)
- Turn off SuperFetch (SSDs are fast enought that it doesn't matter and wastes memory; Windows 7 turns it off automatically)
- Don't bother with ReadyBoost (SSDs are faster than USB flash drives)
- Disable system indexing (SSDs are fast enough that it doesn't matter...I always turn it off because it's a resource hog
- Disable System Restore (wastes 15% of space on your SSD)
- Disable hibernation (SSDs boot up a lot faster than regular drives)
- Remap My Documents and user directories to your hard disk if you use one w/ the SSD
- Change your BIOS storage mode from IDE to AHCI before installing Windows (enables TRIM support so the SSD doesn't get worn out quickly)
