I believe on old first gen SSD's they didn't auto disable it at all.
Hmmm.... never knew that. Is there a place to find this info?


Never mind I found it.....
I never knew it either, until I couldn't figure out why everyone said Windows disabled it and mine wasn't. When I ran the WEI, I discovered for myself that that was what triggered it to turn off.

Didn't find any documentation on it at the time.

I keep Superfetch on though.
