So most people leave it on with ssd?Temporel wrote: ↑Sep 24th, 2018 9:41 am
I also have the same doubts.
I keep reading from SSD "experts" to disable indexing and superfetch while Windows 10 experts say leave those On as Windows knows about SSDs and knows what's best.
I leave it on. I think it's coming from the mentality of an older era where saving writing cycles on SSDs mattered. It doesn't anymore.

That's because it's been on sale at this price for a week.

That's a weird statement considering SSD write cycles drop with every new & smaller NAND generation. Sure, improved controller tech mitigates that to a small extent, but not even close to making up the difference.

How empty you keep your drive is going to matter a lot here, I think. Keeping it half empty will leave the controller lots of freedom to do wear leveling, kind of thing.. but if you are using 90% of the drive, wear issues could get more serious?JackWhyte wrote: ↑Sep 24th, 2018 11:29 amThat's a weird statement considering SSD write cycles drop with every new & smaller NAND generation.

That old high-nm MLC will last longer than a human will, and it's only the controller lifespan that will kill it. I have a first-gen Intel SSD from like 2008 that I use as a cache drive (after a long service in the desktop and in an old Macbook) and it's still chugging along.

The only thing you're supposed to disable is defragging and thats done automatically by Windows. So i'd leave well enough alone. If something changes the masses will scream DON'T DO THAT!
