Windows 7: Show us your SSD performance

I have never had a reason to go into the registry.
I also thought I was required to make a written/typed registry change.

Thanks guys I didn't realize it was drill down procedure. I always mark drills with >
for click the next item in the list.

I see where I marked in my Snip in yellow where the / format came from.
First time I realized what was intended from that notation.
Now I know! Doh!!!!


So which is the Superfetch Key in the Snip you were refering to profdlp?

Everyones help is greatly appreciated. Thanks.
Mike

I haven't installed the SSD yet.
I was trying to find out all this ahead of time so I was prepared.

Earlier today I found how to turn Superfetch back on after the Intel Toolbox turns it off.
I have no clue to what Wishmaster is saying to do.

Wishmaster:
-->BTW If you let the toolbox disable pre-fetch, and decide to turn it back on, youll need to enable not only the service, but the registry settings as well.

HKLM / CurrentControlSet/Control/SessionManager/MemoryManagement/PrefetchParameters
Set Enable Prefetcher and Enable Superfetch to 1.
Then re-enable the Superfetch service and start it.
Wishmaster is off line.
I'm not disputing what is posted.
I wish I understood what Wishmaster posted?

I don't know where these settings are or what this is-
HKLM / CurrentControlSet/Control/SessionManager/MemoryManagement/PrefetchParameters

According to his instructions, you need to right click the bottom two in your snip> Modify> change it to a 1> OK.

Oh ... I did leave out System. Sorry.

HKLM > System ......


The only reason you would need to make these changes however, is if you let the Intel Tool box disbale Prefetch, and then later, decide you actually want it On.

Otherwise, you do not need to do this... especially if you just want it off as the toolbox suggests.

Personally, I would use it at Intel's default (Off) for a week or two before experimenting. Otherwise, how would you know whether it made a difference? If this is your first SSD you're going to be blown away by the performance boost to begin with.

Just so I don't start an argument, it would be equally valid to leave SuperFetch "On" for a week or two, then turn it "Off". Either way you'd be better able to see if it made a difference.

I've left mine "Off" since I got my SSD a year ago. I might just enable it to see what I notice.

Maybe it was just my imagination, but I turned mine back on and it didn't seem to run as well as it did when I let the toolbox turn it off.

I was going with WHS suggestions so was planning on turning it on.

I'll try it as installed with it off first. I just wanted to have everything figured out ahead of time.
Avoid last minute glitches as best as possible.

I should have been a Boy Scout!

Prof and Essenbe,

I was typing as you were posting. That sounds like an excellent idea.

I was trying to get everything set up in advance.
I will try it both ways and since it will be off to start leave it off.
Turn it on later and try it.
