Windows 10: Turn On or Off Fast Startup in Windows 10

    Hi there

    I only have a question. In my actual configuration last year I deleted hiberfile.sys and so the fast start up was gone.
    Now, I'm installing a new Windows 10 in a completely new SSD and the AU version of OS.
    I reinstalled it 3 times for different problem, but in each installation at the first (and incredible slow) opening, the size of just the OS was 52 GB.... I forgot hiberfil.sys and pagefile that with 64 GB of RAM are huge.
    Now my question is:
    Last time I delete hiberfil.sys and I move pagefile in a different disk (HDD) in a partition dedicates to scratch file, history (search) file, etc. but, with my RAM dimension, why Windows have to work on SSD instead of using the RAM to have the fast startup?
    So, my mobo has UEFI, but if I don't like the idea to waste 40 GB or more on my system SSD drive, I cannot have fast startup.
    Is there any way to move the hiberfil.sys file too in a different drive?
    Thanks in advance

    Hello Lio,

    I'm afraid that the hiberfil.sys file can only be on the Windows drive.

    Fast startup requires that hibernate be enabled. If you only want to use fast startup and don't plan on using hibernate, then you can specify the hiberfile type as reduced to significantly reduce the size of the hiberfile to about half of its full size to save space.

    Thanks Brink for the quick reply, I feared this answer
    I don't think that the advantages of the fast startup worth the waste of 25 GB of my SSD drives.
    Now, after 1 year, on a 128 SSD drive, with all the user folder (download, documents, music, pictures) moved i different single different partition, without hiber.sys and with pagefile and windows.edb in the scrath partition, only remains 33 GB
    And I only have the Adobe CC suite, Office, antivirus and the Photoshop plugins.
    This is the reason I reinstall the new Win 10 in a new 240 SSD drive....
    Maybe I'll try for some day if I see a real difference. For now the new OS on the new drive is disconnected after 3 different installation because of the size (now solved) and because of the unbelievable slowness: it can't ever open a windows without having the usual wheel spinning and if i open 2 different explorer windows every time I see "not responding".
    A real nightmare

    I find with my SSD, my Windows 10 AU boots in about 5 - 10- seconds. No need for the Fast Startup.

    I guess with an SSD the benefits of fast start are small. Mine is still on as tend to leave as much as Windows at default as possible. Not too bothered if it's on or off. The only thing that does worry me is the possibility of excessive writes to the SSD shortening it's life. I'm not really sure how much writing the hiberfil.sys file does. If I shutdown my PC it does it within a few seconds - it doesn't seem long enough to be writing 16 odd gigabytes everytime I shutdown so I assume maybe it just updates what it needs to/changes rather than re-write the hiberfil.sys over and over? I certainly hope not because then that does seem to be excessive writes to the SSD. I've seen so many conflicting views on the SSD front ranging from not to worry as modern SSDs would last many many years to pessimistic views that those type of writes can wear it out within a couple of years.

    ForceFastStartup


    Hello,

    The Fast Startup feature was not working on my PC(Mainboard: Gigabyte GA-MA78GM-S2H).

    And now, it's working. How? Thanks to the Force Fast Startup setting.

    -- ForceFastStartup.bat --
    powercfg /h off
    powercfg /h on
    powercfg /h /size 10
    powercfg /h /type reduced

    REG ADD "HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session Manager\Power" /V HiberbootEnabled /T REG_dWORD /D 1 /F

    REG ADD "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\System" /V HiberbootEnabled /T REG_dWORD /D 1 /F
