10GB SSD space disappeared? - Page 2

post #11 of 14
It is recommended to turn hibernation off because SSDs make it obsolete (the need for quick resume). I have it turned off on my laptop and have not had any issues. Are you running Windows 7 or 8 on the laptop?

Windows 7 64 bit... I'm just worried because I do put my laptop to sleep a lot, but I don't know if that is unrelated to hyberfil.sys or not.

Sleep is similar state in appearance for the end user but have noghing in common with hibernation. While Laptop or PC is in sleep mode it is not completely turned off, while it is in hibernate it is completely shutted down. Turning off hibernation does not hurt sleep mode in any way. Sleep performs the way it is configured in power options in control panel.

Take a look here for tweaks for SSD.

Correct. In Sleep mode, power is left to the RAM so the system is suspended to the memory. With hibernation, the current state from ram is saved to the hard drive for quick access when booting. So there is no power to ram (which is volatile and dumps when power is not provided).
