Optimize Windows 7 for SSD (Part 1) Disable or Move Page file and Disable system restore
In this guide I show you how to get the most out of your SSD by setting up Windows 7 to use up less drive space. We begin by disabling 2 drive hogs, page file and system restore. This reduces the amount of space that windows sets aside in your hard drive for system restore backups and page file for ram. You can move your page file to another hard drive if you feel like you might need it. Disabling it entirely will make a program crash if you run out of RAM, so only do this if you have sufficient RAM to run all the programs you want to run.
Steps Right click My Computer - Properties - Advanced System Settings - Advanced Tab - Performance Settings - Advanced tab - Virtual Memory Change - set page file to your liking
- OK/Apply - System Protection tab - Configure - Turn off system protection - Set max usage - Delete restore points - OK/Apply
