Windows 7: Is Windows 7 tweaking itself?

Turning SuperFetch off was a stupid idea people had when they thought Vista was taking too long to start up. Always leave it on!

Windows 7 has vastly improved SuperFetch anyway though.

Yes I have done the same as well and I dont think that indexing function is used by the system itself to make loading up certain files for the operating system any faster.

It has the usual indexing, so that speeds things up. As NightHawk mentioned, it does background defragging. All of that ultimately keeps the overhead down.

Windows Indexing Service has nothing to do with Defrag which runs on its own schedule. Mine runs on Wednesdays @ 1am which I believe is the default. The problem is if one keeps installing a new build every other day them maybe it will never run .

Have they already implemented the TRIM functionality? I was under the impression it hadn't been added in yet...

EDIT:
nvm, I just verified that it has been implemented in Windows 7.. But doesn't the drive need to support the functionality as well?

The SuperFetch itself is the improved form of Windows memory management and sadly mistook by many in Vista. Since the preload of the most often used programs into memory was seen as more memory being chewed up when viewed in the task manager's performance tab everyone assumed 2gb was too little for the verage desktop.

The drive maintainence part of all that running quietly in the background usually goes unnoticed until you look and wonder why there's no longer any large fragmentation seen there and now with 7. But that comes with the price of using a little more memory while using it a little more efficiently.

The two articles sum things up rather well for the improvements to be seen in 7 regard the SuperFetch and SSDs. Like I was saying before about the problem with the power options setting seen reverting to the defaults on each startup that would fit into the "adjustment to user pattern" analogy when now seeing the personal setting not to see the dispay turned off in so many minutes but the never setting.

The host 7 install is now remembering that while the other two installations(1=64bit, 1=32bit) always seem to forget from not being booted into on a daily basis. Note each installation has the exact same programs installed with the same startups while the host install is showing adjustments there to the patterns of personal usage as if 7 is displaying an adaptive memory.
