    Not interested in tweaking it.
    I was just worried that something was wrong with my drivers or the drive itself as I have read that if optimisation (not defreg) doesn't run then the drive slows down , fills up with garbage data and becomes corrupt.
    Thanks for having a look for me ,
    I have install a tune up program to do a sheduled maintenance cleanup every few days to see if it helps .
    will keep you informed and if you stumble on any more info please let me know ☺

    O.k., seems to me now performance is not good at all, even after clean install.

    Be careful what you choose with tune up software, most might cause more damage then good.
    May need to turn off some stuff running, check the task manager, then startup. Bluetooth is one, if not using.There is another i can not remember it, something to do with communicating with other devices, like phones, turn that off too.

    Use CCleaner clean cache, windows history.

    Once a week should be enough for Optimize.

    Hey again ,
    Yes already turned off bluetooth and the other one is nfc.

    Tune up utilities 2014 is the software I'm trying out.
    It's now owed by AVG ...
    Used it years ago on my laptop and it was fine, Kept it running nicely for a few year's so I thought I'd give it a go.

    Do you still own the Asus ??

    Yes i do, i am familiar with TuneUp Utilities, it's alright use to use it to turn off certain programs i did not want to completely disable, has a feature does it nicely, deactivate. Try not to use the Registry cleaner. Flight mode is nice too. Always been AVG, make 2 version one with a yearly subscription and one without. Felt the cleaner part of it was not too good.

    Other ways of doing what this program does if you are knowledgeable with the PC. Sometimes people like easier option, let a program do it.

    NFC yes that was the one, kills battery life along with Bluetooth, unless you are using them.

    Yeah the options are pretty cool, Turned off the annoying notifications on the taskbar that pop up, except the one's I want.
    It was another company back in 2006 when I used it lol...

    Just out of curiosity does yours say optimisation not available too ?
    In windows that is.

    I wanted to work out if anyone has it working without any tweaking etc as I haven't managed to find a positive yes or no anywhere online..

    Is It going to get to a point where I just have to reformat every 6 Months or so like the Asus eeepc 701 I had running xp that went all corrupt every so often lol

    Talking about TuneUp saying optimizations not available or Windows 8 ?

    Again are you talking about having your ASUS ME400C working well without tweaking ?

    Most were having issues with the version of Windows 8 ASUS put on they felt, freezing, crashes.
    Originally posted if there was a way to do a clean install, this was out of curiosity at first.

    Knowing if i ever needed to do a system recovery i would have to go through putting back all those Windows updates again, plus Windows 8.1 and there updates, so i figured if i could do this clean install, be less to do.
    I am not saying it needs to be done, but around the net a lot of others were experiencing issues with original install.

    I feel it works good, with fresh clean install of Windows, i put Windows 8.1 on mine. Tweaking, is questionable, matters if you know what you are doing. Plus will it really make a big difference, always make a restore point. Do not want to keep reformatting, not good for the drive.

    In windows mate I did say ☺

    As I say I've clean installed from disk windows 8.1 update 1 and activated it with the oem key fine .

    I always make a restore image as soon as I have the machine up and running with all drivers and updates at the time .

    If you right click, Select properties on your c drive then tools , optimise. Does it say optimisation not available and the optimise button is greyed out ?
    At first it wasn't greyed out but changed as soon as I clicked it .

    Drive is a Solid State Drive, optimize is not grayed out ,but analyze is.

    This is the same with my Windows 8.1 Pro Desktop. Just believe does not need to analyze a SSD, when it optimizes it it trims it.

    System restore before updates and after awhile that you know all is good.

    If you click optimise it will grey out and say optimisation not available I believe.
    Does it tell you when your drive was last optimised if it doesn't its never run or been trimmed mate .
    From what I have found so far it is seen as an sdcard.

    Really sorry I just realised I have hi-jacked the thread and turned it into a dicussion about the disk ..
    if a Mod wants to delete my questions about the eMMC please do .

    Thanks alot ☺ getting there slowly

    No, if i click optimize it runs and trims the drive. Last time was a week ago. You believe , are you sure ?

    You can set a schedule, weekly, monthly and daily. Oh, can't do it to the recovery partition.
    Not sure why yours is doing this possibly.

    No not hi-jacking this thread/post, actually it is marked solved, but the Mods leave it open to help others as you said it has helped you.

    Anytime!! YW

    Now if you want to open a new thread with your poblem to see if anybody knows why.
    Most are going to tell you not to defrag an SSD, but from research it isn't.
