Windows 7: Installing on an SSD

There is a lot of questionable "advice" floating around. The only measures I took was to disable defrag and delete the hibernation file. Write caching, Page file, Superfetch etc. I let intact. And after 6 months I have seen hardly any degradation as you can see here:



People are too worried about "damage" that write operations may cause to the SSD. I do not think this fear is warrented. The SSDs will last the 3 or 4 years that we keep them.

SSD on new computer

I am building a new super computer and want to use an Intel SSD as the boot drive containing only the Windows 7 OS, with storage on two RAID-configured SATA hard drives. Is there a way to make a system image of my old computer whereby I can retain all of my applications on the new computer? Or will I have to reinstall all of the software?

Nelsomw, That will not work. You have to reinstall Windows and all programs on the new computer.
