Hopefully you will have already seen quite a substantial increase in performance on the start-up of your Notebook and opening of applications now that you're up and running on an SSD. However, there are certain things you need to make sure you do/don't do to ensure that the performance isn't degraded over time and that the life of your SSD drive is prolonged. For example, you should NEVER run a standard Hard Disk defragmentation tool. These can drastically reduce the life of your SSD, which is something you certainly don't want after forking out all that money. Instead look up tools such as TRIM and diskpar (if you're running Windows XP).
Unfortunately the amount of information surrounding the maintenance of SSD drives is way beyond the scope of this article, so your best bet is to head over to our forums
for any specific advice. Of course, you can also drop by the forum and try to grab my attention
if you have any issues with this guide or need any help picking the tools for the job.
