Windows 7: 80 GB intel SSD on the way

80 GB intel SSD on the way

My plan is to just plug it in and reboot with no other SSDs or HDDs connected, install W7x64 & my other programs, attach my two traditional HDDs & that is about it.
Looking for advise on what else tweak-wise, etc. I need to be doing.......or is this just about it?
thanks,

fmg

A few of the things is to run windows experience index pretty quick after install. It is said that this causes windows to recognize it as an SSD and take appropriate actions. Windows should disable defrag on the SSD but check a make sure. Other things such as write indexing, superfetch and prefetch are debatable. There are arguments on both sides. I turn superfetch and prefetch off. Write indexing I have tried both ways and seen no difference. You should set Windows to never turn off the hard drive and disable hibernation (to free up disk space). I also move my user files to another hard drive for the same reason.
A good idea is to do a system image as soon as you complete install and move it somewhere. you will have to put it in a folder or rename it or windows will overwrite it the next system image you do. In order to use it you will have to rename it back to the original name. That way you won't have to reinstall again.
That is about all I do, other than watch disk space and install some programs on another drive. I usually choose the very large programs or the ones that you seldom use. That's about all I do.

Hey, thanks for the advice.

Will read the other thread...

I plan on only OS & programs only on SSD so I doubt I will hit 50 GB.
Where do I double check Defrag, Super & Pre Fetch off?
Same with disable SSD turn off & hibernate?

thanks,

Since you have Windows 7, you really don't need to do anything other than install the OS, and run WEI. Once that's done Windows will do the rest, including disabling Defrag.

If you want to migrate you OS from you spinner to the SSD drive, this will make life much easier - Paragon Migrate OS to SSD - Overview. It even allows you to choose which folders you want to move

Yea Win7 will handle everything for you. Just run the WEI, then reboot.

Aside from possibly disibling and deleting the Hiberfile, I wouldnt do any tweaks to it.

The Intel drives do very, and Win7s default settings for them work quite well. Addtional tweaks really do nothing for performance, except maybe slow things down a little bit.

Another sort of related question.
I would like to backup an image of my SSD dive (OS, programs, & a few bits).
Best way to do this using W7?
Just use the W7 backup system?
