Default Re: SSD > I finally made the jump

I think you're the first person I've seen that's said no improvement... My virus scans, defrags, boot times and copying files nearly doubled in speed.

Default Re: SSD > I finally made the jump

On my old drive and OS setup I had disabled the page file. Having 16 gigs of 1600 ram I just didn't see the need for it. Drive performance improved somewhat.
It finally occurred to me having a new OS and the SSD to see what happens when I disable the page file.
