increased speed offered by SSD storage devices. Therefore, if you chose to use SSDs with these types of applications, you should consider configuring an automatic data backup process (such as Windows Backup and Restore or File History) to protect the data stored on the SSD drive on a traditional hard disk drive. Some system builders implement a mix of storage devices in high performance systems such that: Heavily used information is stored on a standard hard disk drive. For example, the Windows operating system and its applications may be installed on a less expensive (but more durable) standard hard disk drive. Only data that requires high performance is stored on SSD storage devices. Important data on the SSD is automatically backed up on the standard hard disk drive. TRIM One method for extending the life of an SSD device is to enable TRIM functionality. TRIM configures the operating system to communicate with an SSD device and to tell it which blocks of data on the device are no longer required and can be wiped clean. This prevents the SSD device from storing unnecessary data and being overused. Later versions of Windows should automatically detect the presence of an SSD device and enable TRIM. You can verify this by opening a Command window and entering: fsutil behavior query DisableDeleteNotify This command will return either a 0 or a 1 . A value of 0 indicates that TRIM is enabled, but a value of 1 indicates that it is not. If it is disabled, you can manually enable TRIM on an SSD drive by entering: fsutil behavior set DisableDeleteNotify 0

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
