I suppose if you willing to transfer the Operating System from your current HDD to the SSD there are two ways in which you can do the same. There are two ways to transfer the operating system from your current HDD to the SSD:
So you need to first of all Prepare the SSD . You need to first have to initialize the SSD so that you are able to create the MBR. You can do that with Disk Management.
Then you require to align the SSD and describe an active partition on it. You make use of an elevated Command Prompt with the following commands:
you can make use of these commands to confirm that the alignment is correct.
Select disk n (where n is the number that was given for your SSD in List disk)
Create partition primary align=1024
Format fs=ntfs quick
Active (assuming you want to install an OS)
I have some settings to talk after the OS transfer.
Select disk n
Disk Defragmentation will not make any sense on an SSD. If you are using laptop, move to the Services and then navigate to Disk Defragmenter, and then you require to right click on it and move to the Properties. Here you need to set the service to Disabled.
and in the case of desktop, you may desire to disable defrag in the Disk Defragmenter and simply for the SSD so that the remaining HDDs are able to still defragmented.
Hibernation File it is seen that many people don’t make use of Hibernation, and they make use of Sleep instead. But, the hiberfile takes valuable space on your SSD . To the same tune as the size as your RAM. To get free of it, you need to run the following command in elevated Command Prompt: powercfg –h off.
In addition, you need to also consider a Superfetch as there are many “experts”who suggest to turn Superfetch off. But according to me , I don’t think its appropriate. As it comes in view that fetching a program or data from RAM is still a lot faster when we make a comparison with fetching it from a disk. and this to the ssd as well.
