Windows 7: Will Acronis work on SSD?

Boot time of 34 seconds is not too bad. But if all is setup correctly, it should be 20 seconds or less.

And does iot say 'Error' or 'Warning'. And does it say 'False' under IsDegradation (see pic)

I just discovered something I had not seen before and I just made this change.

Go to msconfig > boot > Advanced Options
*select all 4 cores
*select max amount of memory

Mine was set to one core, and zero ram... so I upped it to 4 cores and all I can get it to accept is 3228 for ram.

But, it does seem to boot a little faster.

I added this to my list of tweaks.

Yes, it says false for the last error

Actually, all 100 errors show false.

Is false considered normal?

Leave it at 1 core. The 4 core setting is for hardware testing only. It might get you into trouble.

Really? What if I set it at two?

I can't imagine this would harm the processor since processing is what it does.

I suggest setting this way and leave it that way.

Is there a reason why?

I'm seeing others say it's OK to set it at 4 and it's one of the tweaks to do to a computer.

Layback Bear is right, it should be at 0 (zero) not at 1. I stand corrected, sorry. Anything else is BS.

And this is based on what?

I found an article that has numerous commonly accepted tweaks and it said this was OK.

Do you know if anybody that has done testing showing this is very bad for your system that I can read?

Just trying to see why one source says this is OK, and two individuals say it's gonna damage my machine.

The setting is for debugging purposes and nothing else.

If you have a multiple core CPU (Ex: Intel Core Duo or Quad CPU) or multiple CPUs, then this will show you how to change the Number of Processors that will be used during boot up for troubleshooting and debugging purposes to be able to determine if there is a problem with a single processor/core, or for a programmer to test their code against a single core while running on their multi-core system.
