    When using SSD as main HD, for optimized settings you have to turn OFF the Windows search function.

    :confused: How can i turn this off permanently:confused:.

    You can turn off "Windows Search" via Control Panel -> Administrative Tools -> Services.

    Alternatively use this registry tweak to permanently disable it:

    Code:
    ; Disable Windows search
    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\ControlSet001\Services\WSearch]
    "Start"=dword:00000004

    What is the least amount of wear to a SSD when you want to repair your Win10 install ?

    1. Using a Refresh install ?

    2. Restoring from an image backup previously created ?

    Or are they about the same wear ?

    Stop worrying about wear, read up on how many R/W cycles SSDs can handle these days, then relax and start using it like you would any normal HDD

    If you have Samsung SSD, Samsung Magician would tell you what to do with each setting.

    turning off the search function is a very stupid idea. without the search function, it will take much longer for you to search messages in local Outlook inbox, and possibly other software/database. There is a reason that the search service is set to be "automatic" in the first place.
    The wear and tear caused by the Search service is minimal.

    Whether you installed Windows 8.1 on an SSD or moved Windows 8.1 to an SSD, or upgraded from Windows 8 to 8.1 all that is required is to run wisat.
    This tool discovers you have Windows 8 installed on and SSD and adjusts the appropriate system settings (see below).
    Most users see the output of this via the Windows Experience Index.
    You should run this tool if:
    1 – You’ve just installed Windows 8.1 (and you want the system optimized immediately or just want to be sure it is run)
    2 – If you’ve moved Windows 8.1 to an SSD
    3 – You upgraded from Windows 8 to 8.1
    4- You messed with any settings related to “SSD tweaks”
    5 – You aren’t sure if your system is optimized for an SSD.

    To run WinSat:
    Press the Windows + R keys > type winsat formal and click OK

    there is no need to do anything
    a clean install is all that is needed and your good to go
    chances are that you will replace the ssd before it starts to die
    unless of course your using it to death.
