My primary use was gaming, and the SSD's didn't really do squat. That makes a certain amount of sense because most of the time everything gets loaded into the RAM when a level loads so the drive is...

He, I'm another SSD skeptic :p. Bought Intel 320s, the SSDs didn't live up to all the hype, so I sold them and now back on my short stroked F3s.

It all depends on your usage patterns I guess.

Nope. At least not anything that I ever encoutered (I mean, when you say anything, I feel I need to qualify that answer). The FAT32 partition resides just fine with NTFS partitions. I've cloned,...

Does using FAT32 make any difference vs NTFS? I just read a couple of accounts said it made no difference at all.

My general use/browsing PC has 16GB of RAM, and I've had the pagefile disabled completely for almost a year now with no side effects. That PC has fairly light use though.

The same reason they recommend against complete removal of the paging file is the reason you shouldn't completely move it to another drive. The OS uses it. You can reduce its size on the OS, but it...

I've always been told that the pagefile is best put on a separate drive to the OS (assuming said drive is as fast or faster than the OS drive).



'Waste' doesn't concern me. They're 1TB drives,...

It was a 1TB drive, but only one 100GB partition (for the purpose of 'short stroking'). Windows was only just installed, so there was barely any space used.

CHKDSK discovered free space marked as allocated in the volume bitmap.

chkdisk on my new Windows 7 install returned the following:



This is a brand new clean install of Windows that's barely been used. What could have caused this?

Now the icons don't even show up correctly in the first place. They all start out blank, but they transform just as slowly as before.

There was supposed to be spaces in "Max Cached Icons"?

Why do desktop icons load at log-on, then refresh one at a time?

Well I haven't tried the imaging function yet, but 'clone' is useless. No matter what I do it always gave a VSS error. I tried everything in Macrium's KB. So I gave up and used MiniTool Partition...

It doesn't. The progress bar just flicks across a couple of times and then it's gone.

Stop UAC Prompts For Auto Start App

I use D3DOverrider, and I have it set to start with Windows. The problem is that UAC prompts me to allow it on every startup. How do I give it the privileges it needs for UAC to leave it alone?
