Oh trust me wasn't planning on leaving that up there, those damn women are stalkers lol. Here is some things you should change for your ssd

Tips for Windows / in general

- Partition alignment: yes
- Defragmentation: no (defgramention does nothing for ssd)
- Indexing: no
- Swapfile on ssd: yes (I actually turned this off because it shortens the life of the ssd, it is supposed to be a big gain though)
- Under-partitioning: choice of user
- Software caching: yes to JMicron, other ssd's: choice of user
- Wipe (OCZ): Yes, but not until Windows 7 TRIM raid and support
- Raid controller: choice of user
- AHCI: preferably enabled

SSD's are said to have a 10 year life span?
how much can you shorten it's life by using a swap file on it?

I honestly dont think a SSD will last 10 yrs, a buddy of mind that uses his pc as much if not more than me his went out less than 6 months of use. We use our pc everyday for at least 6 hrs a day though.

I have tried, several times to get this corrected without any success. At this point I am frustrated and just want to get this done. I do appreciate you asking.

Thanks,
