    turn off system restore if u dont need it or just leave it for OS Drive only and disable hibernation:


    To disable hibernation:

    Click Start. Type powercfg /hibernate off. Press Ctrl+Shift+Enter.

    To enable hibernation:

    Click Start. Type powercfg /hibernate on. Press Ctrl+Shift+Enter.
