Hello to all my fellow and future users of SSD drives and Windows 7.
I wanted to set up an area with real-world tips on getting the most out of your SSD and the Windows 7 operating system. I will separate each type of tip to its own message to keep things easier to read and to follow.
All of this has been tested on my laptop system, configured as follows:
HP DV2270us, Core 2 qual 2ghz, 4 Gig RAM.
Disk 0: Patriot M28 64-gig SSD 240MBs (Boot drive), Disk 1: Seagate ST9500420AS 500 Gig 100MBs second drive.
Windows 7 ultimate 64-bit.
Machine is used all day every day at work and home, lots of virtual machines running.
These suggestions are just the way I choose to set things up and get GREAT performance and utilize the SSD to its fullest potential. Your mileage may and probably vary. The tutorials and suggestions are not meant to be debated, its all up to you to decide if you want to try them or not.
All standard disclaimers apply... I am not responsible for breaking your stuff, only mine.
With all that said, on with the tutorials...
