Windows 7: ssd set up

Access time of 0.2ms is not unusual. Yes my OCZs have 0.1ms, but my 2 Intels are also 0.2. I would not worry about it. In real life it makes really no difference - at least I have not noticed any.

And Golden is right. Running too many tests is not good.

Hmm, the WEI does indeed not look right. Check your alignmnet. maybe there is a problem: SSD Alignment The procedure for checking is towards the end.

True, the installer does the alignment. But there were still cases where it was out of wack.

I agree with whs - I would have expected a WEI of +7.

Re-check the alignment. Have you implemented any tweaks before posting here?

yeah i done most of the tweaks but they don't seem to make much of a differnce apart from gaming which seems to be slower than normal. I have done most of the recommended tweaks here SSD Tweaks and Optimizations in Windows 7

i ended up turning on a few of the services back on because i am sure it was causing some perfomance issues

The majority of these tweaks were for early generation SSDs and no longer apply.


IMHO, run the WEI assesment.
Then restart your computer.

Win7 will automatically make all the tweaks that were needed.

Thats all you should do.


Optionally, you can delete and disable the Hiberfile if you do not use it. And possibly turn off Indexing on the SSD, (Not disable the service just uncheck the index option for the SSD)


You can also turn SuperFetch back On if you choose. Completely optional.


But, overall, run WEI and reboot is the only "tweak' you need to do to a modern SSD. It will take care of itself.

If you have been benchmarking it a lot, just leave it alone for a while. In a few days, performace will return to normal on its own.

+1, that's the way I do it and never had problems. Many of those "recommended" tweaks are counterproductive - e.g. turning Superfetch off. The RAM is still a lot faster than even an SSD.
