    Hi, i've been reading some threads here, some people say we should disable hybrid boot because of the kernel beeing hibernated into the SSD and that causing troubles with it, but some say we're ok with the defaults settings.

    I personally installed Windows 8 since it hit MSDN and leave it with no changes in the maintenance settings and i've keep an eye with SSD Life and its good, green.

    My question is: it is REALLY need to disable maintenance or not? or hybrid boot? should we worry about that? i've seen it running (maintenance) already on my system.

    PS: Sorry for my english.

    No, it's not necessary to disable maintenance. It works based on the type of drive and either runs a defrag on HDDs, or issues the TRIM command on SSDs. I don't see why the hybrid boot would cause an issue.

    Thanks for your reply, 100.

    I've seen it somewhere, don't remeber right, that fact the kernel being hibernated/writed to SDD when hybrid boot enabled that could lead to issues with it. It's kinda hard to me to explain, but since you said there is no need to do anything, i'm relieved. I just was worried about that fact, and the possibility that could do bad things to the SDD.
