    It'll be interesting to see some benchmark numbers with Superfetch enabled and disabled.
    Several members of the old OCC forum including myself played around with benchmarks with and without superfetch enabled. Absolutely no difference.

    To make sure Windows is "optimized" for an SSD or SSD(boot drive) and HDD(Data/Backup drive) all you have to do is run
    Code:
    Winsat formal -V
    in an Admin Command Prompt and let Windows take care of everything.

    The Winsat command, it is a built-in tool for assessing system performance. You can read more about the Winsat command at TechNet/WinSAT and clicking the different commands there. On Windows 8 through 10, when you run the command listed above, Windows runs the same sorts of tests that it would use if it were calculating a WEI, but the tests and the subsequent reboots cause changes to be made to prefetch, superfetch, and ReadyBoot. Windows will gauge how well your SSD preforms and handle accordingly. It also might turn of one of the three for the SSD, but keep it on for a HDD that's being used a a second internal drive, or an external hard drive that is always connected and on.

    The moral of the story and a very good maxim is: Do not tweak, let Windows take care of Windows.
    As for me "Been there-Done that" and learned.

    Thank you. I thought that would be the case.

    What is the -w for? Your link doesn't show any parameters for "formal", and it also says this, which makes me worry: "Running an assessment without parameters may result in system performance problems or system instability."

    Prefetch folder is still there but it's much smaller than it was earlier.

    Then don't run it if you don't want too. That's a V for verbose by the way not a W for What??? Parameter is FORMAL ok?

    That wasn't meant to be hostility, the written word just doesn't "come across" the way it was meant to sometimes If you go to the link I posted, it has a list of the different parameters and some other links to read more about the subject(which I haven't, I just get the info I need at the moment). Hope this helps you a a bit more.
