What: Mechanical hard disks have ruled for ages in the PC industry, but their reign has recently started to come to an end. Today, people are increasingly adopting the faster, more energy-efficient solid state drives (SSDs). Their speedy boot times, decreasing prices and overall performance make them a nice buy; however, SSDs require special care in order to keep them performing well.

On its blog, TuneUp has compiled four steps that will help users to optimize their SSD drives. In order to get the most performance out of their devices, TuneUp recommends that users upgrade to Windows 7, ensure that the TRIM command is enabled, avoid defragmenting their solid state disks and should even consider disabling SuperFetch, Prefetch, ReadyBoost and ReadyDrive. By following these steps, users will be able to maintain the performance of their SSD drives and prolong their lifespans.
