SSD Advice

Ok, I finally got myself an SSD.

Is there anything I need to make sure I do with it to keep it at peak performace? Or is Windows 10 pretty good with SSDs now?

Also, If anyone is after a 120Gb SSD, check this is where I got mine, bargain at just over 25 inc postage.

Re: SSD Advice

I'd stick your pagefile on a mechanical drive to save yourself some space. Other than that, Windows 1 pretty much manages it fine these days.

Re: SSD Advice

Windows 10 handles it fine, it wont let you defrag (double check that) and should only have a "Optimise" option which will just run the trim command.

Quite true, no defrag option.

Re: SSD Advice

I recommend the Samsung EVO series. They offer solid performance with a good set of features at a very nice cost
