Sean's Windows 7 Install & Optimization Guide for SSDs & HDDs - Page 173

post #1721 of 5384
Ok, I have a new problem. I wanted to start over and reinstall Windows7 on a new array with different settings but I'm running into a problem setting up the SSD for Win install as follows:

You need to load the RAID drivers then do that

Download on here:

Ok, so after I load the drivers during install I run diskpart? I thought you had to do that at a certain screen at the beginning? Also, what should my cache mode be set to? write back or thru?

I have no idea on cache mode. I only used Intel.

Okay, so I tried moving the system folders to the d drive. They all disappeared from both my user account and the location on the d drive where I told it to move them.

How do I get them back? System repair?

NM, I did system restore and they are back.

System restore? I thought you are NOT supposed to use System restore for SSD? Suppose to be disabled?
post #1728 of 5384
Why not? Disable it if you want to save space but it's totally optional. I have it ON even though I only have 64GB Crucial. Just in case smth goes wrong.

in case something goes wrong? that is why you make an image backup after you install your common programs

This^

Why do you not use it? It is a handy feature. It only takes up 2GB of space and I have used it quite a few times.

Yep, I do one before because say I don't want to install a program I have used b4, but I want do a reinstall I can easily do a back up from the beginning. And If I am just doing a reinstall b/c of a virus, or a corrupt something I can go back to the point at which I had all of my system backed up and don't need to reinstall my programs.
