Sean's Windows 7 Install & Optimization Guide for SSDs & HDDs - Page 140

post #1391 of 5384
Sean, Maybe add something on the OP about "cleaning" your system restore points. For me, when I did a fresh install of win7 and had to go through a good 1GB+ of windows updates, every time windows would create another restore point. Then after everything was reinstalled, drivers and all, it was basically pointless to have those multiple restore points. CCleaner will show you as well and give you the option to delete previous outdated restore points, but when you do a disk cleanup, and head over to the tab "More Options" it will allow you to clean "System Restore and Shadow Copies." This saved me a good 1GB+ on my SSD.

It's probably 'safer' imo with using this cleanup feature rather than completely disabling system restore ability. Install bad Nvidia drivers and need to do a system restore and not having that ability to do so would be a huge pain to some.

New SSD is workin great! People on HDD don't know what they're missin...

That space you got back will get used up again after a few restarts and program installs. Windows automatically deletes the out of date ones to make room for new restore points when it needs too.

Sean, just to clear something up. I noticed you put the "disable indexing" back in the guide. So does this mean you and others have come to the conclusion that it's 'better' to disable it?

I put it there for now in case anyone wants to follow it b/c it doesn't need to be enabled, but on older SSDs it does and some programs are said to work better with it enabled, but we are going to see if it really matters or not.
