Windows 7 will, by default, set Superfetch to manual after the first run of WEI.
It is also recomended by many to do so if Windows 7 doesnt do it on its own.
I used to do leave it manual. However, after some testing, I have since changed my tune and whole-heartedly agree with whs.
After 1 week of superfetch enabled, I could start telling the difference.
It does help, even with SSDs.
I think the reason for it is simple. While the SSD is much faster than the traditional HD, it still isn't as fast as RAM, which is where Superfetch & Prefetch help.
Also, the writes it does do are quite insignificant. I think that whole thing is a bit overblown TBH. at least when it comes to SF & PF.
Agree or disagree, its food for thought.
