Configuration Tips for Win7 on SSD

I personally disable search indexing (searching the SSD is extremely fast without indexing), disable superfetch via the registry and stop the service...I turn prefetch to boot files only (you can completely disable prefetch too if you want....I heard prefetching boot files has a negligible difference in speed or SSD life, so I just leave it on for boot files), I turn off ReadyBoot (runs every time you boot and writes files to try to optimize boot), disable defragging the SSD (you can leave the other drives set to defrag) and thats all I can think of at the moment....

I generally do not turn off the page file....instead I leave a small pagefile on my SSD, and put the larger one on a separate HDD.
