Windows 8 makes a hidden hibernation file in the root directory, which is huge (about 75% of the RAM). I am aware that the hibernation file is supposed to allow you to enter hibernation, which I don't ever use, and to speed up Windows loading from boot, which may be useful. For a conventional hard drive, which is slow, hibernation might be a good thing, as it speeds up loading time. But if we have a solid state drive, which is already very fast at loading, is it better to turn off hibernation? Of concern is the fact that SSDs can't be written to too much. I am afraid that with this huge hibernation file on the SSD, it will be constantly updated with new data each session, causing unnecessary wear and tear on the SSD.
