New SSD w/ WinXP - 02-01-2012, 07:46 PM
I finally got a new HD for my Mini 9. A RunCore 64GB SSD. (The dell SSD failed on me a while back and I finally got around to installing a new drive.) I reformatted with what came with the Dell Mini, WinXP Home Edition.
I have a few questions:
What do I do to protect this drive from prematurely degrading or should I say increase it longevity?
Should I turn off the paging file?
Is the drivers listed here up to date:

From what I have seen sofar, any SSD will fail because of the Heat. The design flaw is the MINI 9 is small and can not move the heat.
The SSDs tend to brick them selfs without warning or reason.
If this is the case, your in luck. Just follow the links!
