    How many of us here is running W-8 on SSD and how is your performance just cloned my drive onto a SSD Kingston Hyper X 3K and it picked up quite a bit of speed .

    I have Win 8 RP running on 2 notebooks with SSD's and it is very fast. But what else would it be? :-)

    On my desktop I've tried it on my SSD and on a Velociraptor. A bit quicker on the SSD, of course, but very fast on both.

    I was wondering if everyone running SSD us all the tweaks like recycle bin, no paging file, turn off indexing, system restore off, plus a bunch more that are listed on the SSD Forums.

    I don't use too many tweaks, some of the important ones windows should defualt off already. Then I just don't ever defrag. A lot of those don't actually take up many write cycles anyway. Defragging would be one of the biggest useless and cycle wasting endeavours ever on an SSD so definitely make sure not to do that and that you or some program doesn't set up a periodic automatic one.

    No paging file will cause some progams to not work, but making a smaller paging file if you have huge ram might make sense...

    I leave the rest alone.

    Most of the tweaks came from The SSD Review web page. Running no page file but I can on a second drive, if I see any issues, no system restore, delete immediately do not send to recycle bin enabled plus trim is also enabled, disable indexing, I use Diskeeper 2011 with the SSD add on but do not run it 24-7 only a couple days a week for about 4 hours on a schedule, and so far everything is running great. 74 GIG free on a A Kingston HyperX 3K 120Gig SSD. Plus change Power scheme to Performance with never shutting of drive or letting go into Hibernation . I did the same with an OCZ SATAII SSD with Windows 7 but the also put a disclaimer on there site.

    All I did was use the Intel SSD Toolbox to turn off pre-fetch. Oh, and I've always turned off system restore, even with mechanical hard drives (sometimes regretting it, but that's the way it goes sometimes...).

    One thing I don't do is turn off pre-fetch might try that later, I always have things backed up and a clone of the drive on hand so system restore is no issue here. I like the SSD's speed and boot times and install times using an old dv9720us HP Laptop,
