Increase the lifetime of your SSD drive
View drive information
Get information about your drive and the manufacturer. SSD Fresh displays general information
suitable for the hard drives that are installed in the computer. You can see for example the
storage capacity and how much space is already occupied.
View S.M.A.R.T. data
Modern hard drives use a system for self-monitoring, called S.M.A.R.T. (Self-Monitoring,
Analysis and Reporting Technology) system. It analyzes the disk and already indicates defects
before they can cause data loss. SSD Fresh reads this information and displays it in the window.
Disabling the Windows defragmentation
Since SSDs have the same access time for all memory cells, there is no need to store them
coherently. In addition this, the defragmentation process generates write hits, which reduce the
lifetime of the SSD. Therefore, it is highly recommended to deactivate the defragmentation
Windows stores the access time for each file access. This produces unnecessary write hits and
thus will reduce the lifetime of your SSD. Disabling of this feature is highly recommended.
Prefetch supports preloading of frequently used applications into RAM. Because of the fast
access times off SSDs, this function is useless and can be disabled.
Disabling the defragmentation of boot files
Because of the way that files are stored in SSDs, a defragmentation of boot files makes no sense
and should be disabled as it reduces the lifetime of your SSD.
Deactivation of the Windows event logging
Windows permanently records system configuration changes, as well as crashes and other events
from various services and programs. This creates unnecessary write accesses and reduces the
lifetime of your SSD.
Storing short name off
For compatibility with old 16-bit DOS applications, Windows creates short names for folders and
files, which results in additional write accesses to your SSD. Current applications do not need
those names, which is why they can be disabled.
