I believe on old first gen SSD's they didn't auto disable it at all.
Hmmm.... never knew that. Is there a place to find this info?


Never mind I found it.....

Didn't find any documentation on it at the time.

I keep Superfetch on though.

Cached fills up physical memory
From the moment I turn on my computer the cached memory slowly goes higher and higher until it gets to 90%+ physical memory usage and I have to restart. I'm really not good with computers so I have no idea what's going on.

Physical memory suddenly fills up, computer slows down
My HP desktop suddely slowed down for no reason -- to a "snail's pace" -- and I opened windows task manager and saw that the memory was 99% full. Restarting solves it for a few minutes, then it happens again. I've run Anti-virus (Avira says I have "multiple hidden files") -- and I need another...
