Before my purchase, I had a Windows 7 system that took 6min 8secs to boot. And this is with a defragmented disk drive. My system is configured with 6GB of memory, a Maxtor 320GB 7200 rpm hard disk and an Intel i7 CPU. I had two major problems with this system - the aforementioned start-up time and an annoyingly slow application start-up. The fact that when waking up from sleep mode the system would still need to be re-booted due to OS problems meant I did frequent boots. I was sure after reviewing performance reports that I needed faster storage.
In the past, this system was configured with a 120GB OCZ Vertex SSD (from 6/09 1/10) but it was unreliable and not earth shattering in GB capacity. However, it booted in little less than two minutes. The manufacturer said I should re-install Windows 7 after I experienced intolerable SSD driver issues. This was an effort I could not afford. Also, I didn't trust the manufacturer's solution. So the SSD now sits in my desk drawer.
SSD and VelociRaptor. Obviously, SSDs are expensive. Even the recently announced crop of SSDs are still pricey. According to the online reviewers, they have reliability issues - and that includes Intel's. SSD performance is probably not an issue for most applications I use. However, I do movie editing and THIS may be a problem for SSDs - large sequential reads and writes. For the time I used my 120GB SSD, HD 1080p movies were choppy. In fact,the Maxtor hard disk also exhibited choppy movie editing.
The VelociRaptor is terrific. It exceeded my expectations.Read more ›
Hold down the Windows key on your keyboard and press R to bring up the Run window.
Type compmgmt.msc and click OK.
In the Computer Management window, click on Disk Management.
Look for the new drive in the right hand pane (it should be listed below your C: drive).
Right click anywhere on the disk and choose New Simple Volume.
Keep the default size setting, which will use the whole disk, and click Next.
Choose to Format the drive with the NTFS file system and use a drive letter.
Finish the wizard and allow the format to complete.
This hard drive replacement has had a greater effect on speed than any other modifications I have made, including stepping up to a new motherboard with an i7- 2600k chip.
(It should go without saying that these results may only be obtained with a SATA III capable system board.)
The installation is a breeze if your new drive is as big or bigger than your old drive. I had to learn (the hard way) that Windows will not recover a saved drive-image from the backup drive if the new boot-drive is smaller than the old boot-drive. It doesn't matter if the used space on the old drive is smaller than the capacity of the new drive. It is a matter of the drive volume.
In order to make it work, these are the steps to take.
1. Shrink the volume of your old boot-drive (see below).
2. Now save a new image of the drive to your backup drive.
3. Create a system recovery disc. Don't skip this. The recovery disc seems to know things your system disc does not.
4. Remove the old boot drive and install the new one.
5. Boot to the recovery disc and recover the image.
6. Enjoy the results.
Shrinking the volume of a disk is one of the easiest and more user-friendly things Windows does.Read more ›
