Windows 7: Docs on a SSD

LOL, a SSD will spoil one real fast. As an example, PS or Paint.NET on a HDD took several seconds to open, SSD time I guess is about second, fast at least.
Correction PS takes about 1-2 seconds, but still much faster than on a HDD.

Jim, do you have Word on the SSD?

I've tried it both ways and there is only a slight difference. Without word open, the file opens in 1 second or less. I have Office installed on 1 SSD and the libraries on another SSD, if that makes a difference.

Yes, Word is on my C: partition and D: partition has my Docs but both are on the same SSD.

I just found a webpage discussing this. One suggestion was to go into MSCONFIG and disable the Microsoft Services. I did this and it is a lot better. There is only a very small delay now, which is not bad. Not sure what that accomplished but it seemed to speed up the opening in Windows Explorer. Thanks,

What happens if you open via C:\Users\youaccountname\Documents instead of via Libraries?

Ah ha! I just tried double clicking on a .doc file via Libraries\Documents and it took about 3 seconds to open.

It is the same thing as Libraries as far as speed. When I did MSCONFIG and unchecked the Microrsoft Services, that made a big difference. When I booted back they were all checked again but the documents opened faster. Don't know why, but it works. Thanks,
