ea66 Posted October 24, 2009 Share Posted October 24, 2009 Hi, I'm a happy user of a x64GB running on Windows 7/NTFS. The drive is used in a laptop as a system drive. The computer is used mostly for office work. Now I've got some doubts about how to work with the system: 1.Since I have a lot of documents on the PC, the Windows Search feature comes in handy, especially with the ability to search inside documents. This however requires indexing to work, will this have any impact on my drive performance/reliability? I know that some recommend disabling indexing... 2.The 'self-healing' mechanism will do it's job every time the computer is idle... that means it is enough to leave it "on the desktop"? When this function is active is there any hdd activity (like the HDD led blinking)? 3. Is there any other way besides hdparm (gives an I/O error) and Hdderase (the computer hangs) to restore the drives performance? Does such operations decrease the drives life time? Thanks in advance Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
