    Isn't it that people only have SSD's to store more files?

    Hi there

    all technology rolls on relentlessly forward. Maybe SSD's are an interim way forward from Spinners -- they will still be around for a while until and unless something CHEAPER, FASTER and uses less power comes around plus also the ability to fit into ever smaller spaces -- Fancy your Smart phone with say 20 TB of fast storage space !!!! who needs the cloud then.

    Cheers

    No, People primarily use SSDs as a fast boot drive. On my computer it usually takes around 10 seconds to boot up which you couldn't achieve on hard drives.

    Also now that 1tb SSDs are coming down in price, people are starting to use them as game drives to speed up game loading and level loading.

    Most of you probably don't remember, but years ago on the first PC's, the ram memory was either plugged into or soldered into the motherboard. It was some time before they started putting the ram chips on little printed circuit boards that plugged into a socket on the motherboard.

    On-board RAM runs much faster than the fastest hard drive, so I'm wondering if an SSD, built right onto the motherboard wouldn't be the next BIG THING. ??? It could far surpass the performance of an SSD plugged into a SATA port, even a SATA III port.

    I recently bought my very first SSD, a little PNY 120 GB drive. I didn't get it because I need it, but just for experimentation purposes. Truly, it's much faster than a regular Hard Drive, in data access time, but it's hobbled by the maximum data transfer rate of my SATA II motherboard. If only I could plug it into a RAM type port, it would be blazing fast.

    For years, I've tweaked the Registry, to get Windows to load its Kernel into ram on boot-up, instead of accessing it from the HD every time the Windows OS needs to access it. That one little tweak can really increase the speed and efficiency of any PC. That really makes a big difference on laptops, which have notoriously slow hard drives.

    SSD? An interesting topic!

    Cheers Mates!

    Thanks TechnoMage, that's a very useful tweak but unable to try myself as I don't have spinners anymore to boot

    You don't really want an SSD or any drive attached to a motherboard. That may be fast but very inconvenient.

    You can still do that with SSD but with much less dramatic result. Win8 and after, have much of it already implemented and that's one part that makes them faster than before.
    "Always unload DLLs" and the like commands are not necessary any more since Vista.

    There are SSDs that plug into the PCI-e port - so called Revo Drives. Maybe you want to try that. Example:

    OCZ RevoDrive 350 Series RVD350-FHPX28-240G PCI-E 240GB PCI-Express 2.0 x8 MLC Internal Solid State Drive - Newegg.com

    Performance is really much better than standard SSDs...

Solved SSDs detected as CF?
I have 5 drives installed on my PC (1 HDD and 4 SSDs, the rest are just partitions). I am just wondering what does CF means on 2 of the SSDs. Does it stand for "compact flash"? How to fix this? Or should I just leave it alone? 6911
