Sean's Windows 7 Install & Optimization Guide for SSDs & HDDs - Page 132

post #1311 of 5384
I use ps3 media server almost everyday.

Does trans-coding put excessive/unnecessary wear on a SSD?

Is it better to keep the 100MB partition in an MBR installation?

Sean, regarding the Outlook "data" file, is it recommended to stay on the SSD or is it OK to stay on the storage HDD? This file is growing very big every day.

So I changed my page file size to 1024 and 1024mb...tabbed out of bf3 a little bit ago and got a strange error that closed my game...I didn't get a SS of it but it had GTX560 on it and said something like it needed 512MB of dedicated memory or something...? uh ok.... Never got that error and haven't gotten it since...hmm...I'll keep an eye on this...
Who knows what my PC is doing since I'm basically playing with no memory left in the system...ug. can't wait for 8gb of memory...

nvrmind... out of system memory errors...whops....need 4more gig BAD

Decided to bite the bullet and bought an SSD(Samsung 830 Sata3 128gb). Of course, it was installed following your guide, Sean!!!

Here's my AS SSD bench...any advice? Or it's as good as it could get?

Is it worth moving the default user files (downloads/pictures etc) rather than just re-listing their location? I tried just changing the folder location before but it got messed up.

It would be cool to have programs that install to default install on the d: drive smile.gif

If you follow Sean's directions correctly regarding the movement of user default folders, you won't have a problem with a majority of file saves.

You just have to be mindful, especially when you install new programs, just change the C to D, or whatever letter you have as your bulk drive.

Only when you write to the drive.

Not 100% on the 100MB partition, but I read it isn't needed. Andy should be able to explain more.

I leave everything default so what ever it is I leave it and I don't really pay attention to it lol. You can do what you want with it tho.

Looks good, IDK if it could be better b/c i have not seen results on AMD systems with that drive.

Just moving the folders does nothing, they will not work correctly unless you use junctions or do the change location in properties.

Idk what you did before, but you should not have had an issue.

Yeah I'm not sure what I did, but I re-installed anyway because I started getting a BSOD.

Just finished going through it, and I don't know if I'm just tired, but now I can't see the 'Location' tab for my documents/pictures etc. Could you put together a quick vid if/when you have time? redface.gif

Awesome guide none the less though, as I said before. And this SSD is snappy!

Actually thanks for reminding me, I'll make one now...it should be up in in less than an hour, i'll PM you when it is up smile.gif

Thanks for eyeing my benchmark, Sean. It's all good, seems AMD has sorted their AHCI drivers in a year. Also, seems that next firmware update will sort everything unsorted at release date.
