Just wanted to drop you a quick note to say thanks for this tutorial.
I purchased a pre-configured desktop windows 10 home system that had a 128gb SSD system drive and a 1tb data drive. Knowing how system drives can fill up over time I was concerned about this small SSD and started searching to see if there was anything I could do to preserve it for the windows OS. Came across tenforums for the first time and your tutorial. I will admit that I did not just dive right in and pull the trigger on this. I read the tutorial over several times and watched the video a few times. I looked over the extensive lists of posts for issues and success stories. I also looked at other sources to see what was being recommended. I created the manufacturers recommended recovery drive as well as a system image and then followed the tutorial exactly....
Good news is that it worked perfectly. Thanks... Now that this is completed I have been researching other methods to free up space and preserve the system Drive SSD for windows OS. By reducing the size or eliminating hiberfil.sys on SSD. Installing new applications to my HDD data drive instead of SSD and setting up the pagefile on HDD disabling it on SSD. Any thoughts on disabling the pagefile on the system drive SSD and enabling it on the HDD. Some claim that if you get to the point of needing to use the pagefile, having it on a separate drive would actually improve performance over having it on the system drive. I don't want to get too far off topic. Thanks again for a great tutorial
