Windows 7: SSD / Backup - recovery

Remove Hibernate- elevated cmd prompt type powercfg -h off and hit enter. It will appear to have done nothing but wii free up space on the SSD -the same amount as how much ram you have installed. you will not have hibernate as a shutdown option.

First impression about SSD : it's much faster than hdd's.
If i'd have more money, i would buy another 2, about 500 GB each
Everything runs faster, even when i made a back up of C partition, and stored on the hdd, i cannot compare with HDD's. Every cent is worth.
I disabled hibernation, actually i always did that on Windows 7. What do you think about the option "turn off harddisk after 20 minutes" ?
It is in Control Panel /Power Options / but i guess you know what i'm talking about.
Should i leave 20 minutes ? Can i change that ? Which harddisk is about ? OS harddisk ?
Thanks a lot for helping me.

I have mine set to never turn off and my monitor to turn off in 45 minutes. As far as I know that is the OS hard disk.

You will want to set yours to never turn off. On OCZ SSDs at least once a week you need to start from a cold start and let it idle on the login screen for 2 hours. That causes them to do 'garbage collection' which keeps the SSD clean and running right. I also presume you know how to put your libraries on another hard drive to save space and add a little security?

I think he means moving your user folders with the Location tab in Properties. And the extra secutity you get because your data is out of the way when your system crashes.

I do, however, now prefer to make new user folders (Documents, Music, etc. ) in a seperate partition and move my own data into there. I then INCLUDE those folders into the respective libraries. This way the original user folders stay on C and are available for the the various programs as repository of their own files and do not get mixed with my data.

I have a problem with Acronis True Image. After i installed everything / configured, etc i made a backup. Today i tried to recovery the image. It was no problem during recovery, in about 3 minutes it was done, but the pc couldn't boot. There is the message " you have to wait 25 seconds....etc... and then Windows should start, but there i wait, and nothing happent anymore. I tried to reboot, pressed DEL to get into BIOS, couldn't. Even F12, quick boot i couldnt access. So i turned off the computer, pressed the button in the rear of my case, named CLR CMOS, and i reset the BIOS.
Now i'm under IDE. That way i can reboot, AHCI, no.
What happent ?
If i leave it on IDE would be a bad idea ?

Try to boot again and go to BIOS. You can losd optimized defaults there. Then reset bios they way you like it and saveamd exit see if you can boot. If not, put in your repair disk and boot to it, go to startup repair and try that at least 3 times with boot attempts in between.

Before i do as you said, i write here exactly the message i see, is white letters on black image
Serial ATA AHCI BIOS version i Src 1.20 E
Copyright ( c ) 2003-2008 Intel Corporation
** This version supports only hard disk and CDROM drives **
Please wait, this will take few seconds
Controller BUS #00, Device #1F, function #02: 06 Ports, 04 Devices

And down on the left side, under "controller" word, a line is blinking, and on the right side are the seconds ( countdown ) but on second 23 nothing happent anymore.
Actually i always see this message + seconds, but is very fast, about 2-3 seconds, and then Windows is starting.
Now, after i recovery the backup image, something is wrong, and i guess there is nothing bad / wrong with the OS.

And when this "error" happent, with AHCI on BIOS, if i try to reboot and press DEL or F12 ( quick boot ) to go into BIOS, i can't.
So i cannot acces BIOS unless i change back to IDE.

I'm not sure I understand. Even if you can't boot, your computer should post(which is what I think you are seeing). It is during post that you push delete or whatever key you push to get tnto bios. With it in IDE you should be able to boot anyway. When you pushed reset cmos, you resest bios, you need to get back in there to set it back up. Can you boot into your System repair disk? If so boot into that and choose other options and select startup repair.
