Re: SSD Optimizations and Tips and Suggestions..

All I know is to never fill it over 75%.. i.e. keep 25% free at all times

Re: SSD Optimizations and Tips and Suggestions..

I've the same drive as yours :

Total hours clocked : 94 days 7 hrs
Lifetime Writes : 1.81 TB

Apart from imp softwares and games on SSD, i install them on HDD (D. IMO, there are quite a few things to keep in mind while having an ssd.

1) Even if some OS optimization tips on some websites and forums advise to remove the pagefile or keep it bare minimum to 250Mb-500Mb, i had trouble playing some games due to Low on Virtual Memory. Increasing to 1024 - 4096 helped tackle the situation.
2) Indexing should be turned off from services.msc
3) Hibernation should be turned off.
4) System Restore option should be turned off for C: drive.
5) Changed System Temp storage folder , Torrent default download place, Chrome-Firefox cache storage as well as download folder to HDD. (With the tutorial available on Internet )
6) Automatic Quick Scan of Antivirus suite or apps like malware-bytes should be turned off as they run in background always and eat up some kb everytime. ( Not sure how much i gained )
7) No installation of Registry fixers, Junk file cleaners like CCleaner helps in reducing TBW of drive.
8) An average user should have 0.01TB - 0.03TB of writes per day. Above that you should really check what's eating your SSD life.
9) Out of 209 GB available, used 46GB and 163GB as free space till date.

@ManISinJpr Da, I believe your SSD is connected to 3Gbps SATA 3 port.. If yes, connect to 6Gbps SATA 3 port and see the difference.

Try installing Samsung Magician Software..
Its really helpful...

Here is my r/w speed...

using Samsung 830 series 128gb ssd on Win 8.1

Make sure you are using it on Sata 6gbps port and also enable AHCI...

enabling AHCI mode in bios will result in OS Crash.. There is a work around for it...

Re: SSD Optimizations and Tips and Suggestions..

@ManISinJpr, Everything seems to be in place, still there's lot of difference in benchmarks.



Click the firmware update from your Magician software as it seems outdated, and after updating the firmware ( strongly recommended). Download : Samsung SSD 840 EVO Performance Restoration Software from here :Samsung SSD Downloads | Samsung SSD and check again. . Though, these numbers wouldn't make much difference in real world, still there's a bit in us that wants more.

Re: SSD Optimizations and Tips and Suggestions..

Hey Manish bhai! Hope this finds you all well. How old is this drive? Use the pefroamance restoration software. A Bug fix it is i guess.
I just got the 850 pro SSD but got it connected to a SATA II port. My board has SATA II only.
