Ignatz, here the screen you asked for!
Defrag is off (I think because is schedulled for "never") but what about pagefile and system restore? Should I turn anything off/on?
And should I disable Write-caching to the ssd?
And should I disable "allow files in this drive to have contents indexed in adition to file properties" ?
I would not disable write-caching.
I turn off indexing on all drives. As far as I know, it's only purpose is to allow you to search the contents of files with the Windows search tool. I search only for file names rather than file contents and even then I do not use the Windows tool.
You need to keep a page file, but you can reduce its size to save some space. I use 1024 MB as a minimum and 2048 MB as a maximum.
I like System Restore and use it probably once a month. You can certainly adjust how much disk space is devoted to it. Mine is set to use a maximum of 8 GB and that allows me to have a dozen or so restore points dating back several weeks.
What is the purpose of that 14.47 GB partition?
Have you confirmed proper alignment?
If it seems to be working well, I'd run a benchmark using a couple of the best known tools, such as AS SSD and ATTO. Post screenshots of the results here or in this thread: Show us your SSD performance 2
I'd keep the screen shots for later reference if the drive starts acting poorly.
You could also test your boot time by downloading the measurement tool in this thread: ReBoot Time
and then making a post about the results. A typical good score is around 30 seconds.
Looks like you are doing fine. Enjoy the drive.
