    Talking SSD slow freeze hang Vista XP Outlook Fix

    <o:p>For those people who are experiencing problems with their SSD (Solid State Drives), like stuttering, freezing, hanging, slow performance, etc.

    A discussion of the technical issues as to why legacy OS like Vista, XP, and Apps like Microsoft Office cause problems with SSDs and what to do about it is here:<o:p></o:p>

    It is interesting to note that these issues arise with ANY commonly available SSD, including and up to fairly modern and well designed ones like the Intel X-25.<o:p></o:p>

    While the problem in theory, do not need to occur in Linux, many distributions are optimized for HDD use, and thus, have the same problems as <st1:place w:st="on">Vista</st1:place> and XP.<o:p></o:p>
    <o:p> </o:p>
    Basically, what is needed is to eliminate the HDD optimizations (that causes lots of small file writes like superfetch and prefetch), things like background HDD defragmentation (that causes lots of small file write drive activity), and then, to recode the OS to do things that a good SSD optimizer does like Managed File Technology (MFT) from www.easyco.com.<o:p></o:p>
    <o:p> </o:p>
    With these tweaks, I managed to get a super slow SSD on an Asus eee PC to perform well.<o:p></o:p>
