Win SteadyState speeds up SSD drives? - 02-15-2009, 05:42 PM
Has anyone tried this? If not, is anyone willing to be a tester?
"MLC based Solid State Drives all have one problem in common in that they have rather poor random write performance. As a result, operations that involve a lot of small random writes such as browsing websites with multiple tabs open or moving e-mail between folders in Outlook will often result in the system stuttering and stalling as it carries out the slow write operations. As some SSDs such as SSD's Core series have very fast sequential write performance, one way to dramatically improve SSD write performance is to convert all write operations to an SSD to sequential writes."

This works by saving up all those random writes, then writing them all at once (sequentially) when you reboot your computer. The problem is if your computer crashes, you lose everything that wasn't written since your last reboot. Too risky, IMO. I did, however, enable the "Power Protected" Write Cache option mentioned by peashooter here.
