10 Tips to Maximize SSD For Durability and Stay Good
Tips on Maximizing SSDs  - The computer market in Indonesia is being attacked by affordable, affordable SSD products. This should be used to improve the performance of both your notebook computer and desktop PC significantly. However, the image of an SSD that has a usage time limit (MTBF = Main Time Before Failure), makes many computer practitioners still fragile.

Well, to reduce the concerns that often arise when deciding upgrade computer system using SSD, this time we will give 10 Tips Maximize SSD  to keep its performance awake but still make life durable.

1. Reduce write-heavy tasks

One of the main concerns when deciding to use SSDs as System Storage is the inability of SSDs to handle the same intensity of each read / write cycle where plate-based HDDs simply do it

However, the write performance will remain slower than reading performance, so reducing the frequency of file copying let alone large-capacity files to the SSD will automatically improve performance.

2.Enable write caching

This method is already active by default, but there is no harm in checking that the data to be written in the SSD is already 'cache' to RAM before it is permanently stored in the SSD. To see if this method is active or not, you can go to:

Device Manager by right click on 'Computer' and choose 'Properties'.
Select 'Device manager' on the top left and click 'Disk drives'
Select the SSD drive that will check its write cache. Right-click then choose 'Properties
Select the 'Properties' tab and check the box labeled 'Enable write caching'

3. Tweak paging files

Tips Maximizing the next SSD is to use some areas on the HDD as virtual memory can be an alternative to the Swap process, which can decrease the performance of the SSD. This option should be disabled by:

Click 'Start', right-click 'Computer' and select 'Properties'
Select 'Advanced system settings',
then go to tab 'Advanced'
click 'Settings' in the 'Performance'
Go to the 'Advanced' tab and click 'Change' in the 'Virtual memory' section.
Clear mark on box 'Automatically manage paging file size for all drives'
Highlight the SSD drive (usually "C" and move the dot to the option 'No paging file'
Click 'Set', then click 'OK' for all dialog windows that appear.

4.Move temporary files

Move the temporary windows file to another drive. This will also reduce the writing cycle on the SSD during the operating OS. How:

Login 'Computer Properties'
Enter 'Advanced system settings'
Then select the 'Advanced' tab
and click 'Environment variables'.
You will find a list of functions for 'temp and' tmp 'of the currently running user id. Select one then 'Edit' to move to another folder. Remember, make sure the destination folder is on another drive.

5. Disable indexing

Deactivating the indexing process is one way to reduce writing activity on the SSD can also improve performance, the effect of time efficiency when looking for something quickly will be reduced. Instead, start the discipline of organizing files.

If you are sure of discipline, and you decide to use this method, just go ahead

open 'My Computer'
Right click on the SSD drive, and select 'Properties'
See the bottom and uncheck 'Allow files on this drive to have contents indexed in addition to filing properties'.

6. Create a RAM disk

This method can be used if you do not have secondary storage but have a lot of unused RAM capacity. To use this method, you are required to have more than 4GB of RAM, at least 8GB is.

6.1 Move caches to RAM disk

Also, use this method to maximize the usage of RAM Disk application. Due to the fact, RAM will stay much faster than a physical drive. It's just that you should always remember, this method is temporary and cache file will be separated from the memory RAM when the computer is turned off.

6.2. Temporary internet files

Frequent browsing on the internet makes the browser cache continue to swell. Well, if you also discipline bookmark the web-web that you want, the history of the browser during surfing no longer you need. Well, just use RAM disk application earlier to move your Temporary internet files to RAM. How,

Go to 'Control Panel' then 'Internet options'
Select the 'General' tab then Select 'Move folder'.
point the folder to the RAM drive
If you are a Firefox user, type about: config in 'address bar' and search for ' browser.cache.disk.parent_director '. Next just double-click this parameter and enter the new location for the cache.

7. Check TRIM functions

The TRIM feature allows the system to provide info on the SSD, which data blocks are no longer needed until the block can be wiped. This feature keeps the disk always in optimal condition in working. Since Windows 7, the TRIM feature is already embedded in it, it's just probably not enabled by default. To know the active conditions or not

Open 'command prompt' using administrator access. If you have never clicked 'Start | All programs | Accessories' then right click on 'Command prompt' and select 'Run as administrator'. Then enter the following command:

fsutil behavior query DisableDeleteNotify

Press [Enter]. if the TRIM feature is on, you will get response 0 (zero). Conversely, if the result is 1, then you still have to activate it manually by entering the command:

fsutil behavior query | set DisableDeleteNotify = 0

8. Check disk TRIM support

Not all SSDs have TRIM features. To be sure, before buying it's good you look for your SSD coveted info to the vendor's website. If necessary, find the full review first because, it could be with a firmware update, an SSD that previously did not support TRIM, to be supportive. From the review, you will know how to activate it.

9. Advanced Host Controller Interface

This is not good for maximizing the use of SSDs because although Windows Vista and 7 natively support the AHCI SATA controller, it is capable of making data transfers faster, but if your motherboard or notebook does not support AHCI standard, it will be useless. To find out if your motherboard or notebook supports AHCI, please check in its bios menu.

10. SSD Tweaker

Well, this method is a "shortcut" of all Tips Maximize SSD above especially for you who hesitate to do the above 9 methods manually. This application is present as an alternative interface pretty easy to maximize the performance of SSD as well as extend life.

SSD Tweaker offers one-click setup including ' clear the paging file' & 'disable indexing', 'system restore', 'NTFS 8.3 name creation' as well as 'file date stamping'. There is also an option 'Auto tweak settings' which will make most moderate SSDs operate maximally with just one click.

The pro version offers more advanced settings, such as 'querying the TRIM status' to the hibernation settings modification. You can also take advantage of TRIM optimization manager that will make TRIM feature runs more leverage on your SSD.

Well, that was 10 Tips Maximize SSD in order to keep the performance awake but still make the lifespan durable. Hopefully, you have no doubt to decide on upgrading your gaming laptop or desktop PC storage system with SSD.
