  • Windows 10 1903

    having replaced my laptop's hdd with a Samsung Evo 860, reinstalled Win10.

    should the default settings that relates to hdd in Windows 10 be disabled or reconfigured? for example, the swap file created by Windows, should i relocate it to an hdd? goal is to prolong, even if slightly, the sdd.

    what about the power settings like hibernation, powering off the drive after a few minutes?

    or is Windows 10 1903 ssd aware that it will manage the ssd efficiently?

  • Hi Reno Mardo.

    I'm running a HP notebook having a 512 GB SSD with Windows 10 Pro x64: I didn't change any setting related to page file or to power and the system is performing excellent.
    You could also take a read at the article at https://www.maketecheasier.com/12-things-you-must-do-when-running-a-solid-state-drive-in-windows-7/ which provides you with a list of dos and don'ts for your SSD in Windows 10.

    Bye.

    yeah after replacing my hdd with ssd i appreaciated Windows' performance.

    i guess Win10 code adapts to an ssd environment.

  • Hi,

    >>should the default settings that relates to hdd in Windows 10 be disabled or reconfigured?

    No, you needn’t.

    For example, the swap file created by Windows, should i relocate it to an hdd? goal is to prolong, even if slightly, the sdd.

    Of course you could relocate swap to an hdd in order to save some SSD’ space, but I think it is unnecessary.

    >>what about the power settings like hibernation, powering off the drive after a few minutes?

    Use Balance power plan is enough.

    >>Is Windows 10 1903 ssd aware that it will manage the ssd efficiently?

    Yes, you don’t need to optimize or defrag manually.

    But if you want more higher performance,you can do the following steps:

    1.Enable TRIM,use the below command in the CMD:

    fsutil behavior set disabledeletenotify 0

    2.Update your SDD firmware

    3.Disable indexing

    4.Set the“High Performance”Power Option

    5.If you have big enough SSD,you can set your paged file in SSD,if not,don’t set

    6.Configure Write Caching

    7.Cancel the sleep mode

    Yes, you're right: Windows 10 can detect the SSD and it is able to optimize its usage accordingly.
