Increase Lifetime and Performance of SSD by Disabling Windows Unnecessary Features

There is no denying that a solid-state drive (SSD) can provide one of the most dramatic performance boosts to a PC. Also, moving from a hard drive (HDD) to an SSD is a straightforward procedure, however, after installing an SSD in a desktop PC you have to adjust your system to the SSD to increase its lifetime and performance.
For example, you need to disable the Windows scheduled defragmentation feature, prevent write access, etc. to increase the lifetime of an SSD.

To make everything simple, you can use an application called SSD Fresh after moving your system from HDD to SSD. This application adjust your Windows system to the use of an SSD.

 SSD Fresh disables the following for better performance and enhanced lifetime of your SSD.

 Windows defragmentation – Unlike hard drives, solid-state drive (SSD) doesn’t need defragmentation. Since SSDs have the same access time for all memory cells, there is no need to store them coherently.

 Deactivate Timestamp - Windows stores the access time for each file. This will produces unnecessary write access, thus will reduce the lifetime of SSD.

 Prefetch off - Because of the fast access times off SSDs, this function is useless and can be disabled.

Disable Windows event logging - Windows permanently records system configuration changes, as well as crashes and other events from various services and programs. This creates unnecessary write accesses and reduces the lifetime of your SSD.

SSD Fresh can be downloaded from developer’s website here.
