Prefetch/Superfetch on my rig with SSD+Spinpoint F3 for Storage/Games

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hey guys,

I was reading through the windows 7/ssd tweak guide on ocz forums, and I plan to use it when I install my ssd tonight.

Question..I read somewhere on here that if you have an ssd + an HDD, you should not disable superfetch because you need it for your spinning drive, and that it doesnt automatically run on an ssd?

Can anyone confirm for me if I should touch superfetch in my case if I am also using a regular hdd for storage and games?

What about prefetch?

I want to make sure I do the right thing..thanks

thanks for the guide...but I feel like the guides are all written with the assumption that the ssd is the only drive..I want to know specifically if I should disable prefetch/superfetch if I am using a platter drive along with my ssd for games and storage...
