SSD vs. HDD

 

Well technology is only getting better and faster!

Next Time you go to buy a laptop, see if the store for example offers a computer with 6GB RAM with 1 Terabyte hard Drive for a low price!

In order to Prevent Computer Problems, Check if there's a catch!

Ask them if the hard drive is an HDD type or an SSD Type! Because based on research SSD IS BETTER AND FASTER AND EVEN ALOT LESS DAMAGING TO THE HARD DRIVE!

That explains why in 2001 when I did a little experiment with my 4 GB flash card Windows Worked and booted allot faster even though this type of memory card isn't designed for that type of use!

What I did was backup my Windows 2000 Professional with a Norton Ghost image and then restore that image to the small 4 GB USB DRIVE! I made changes to BIOS to boot from USB FIRST then HARD DRIVE SECOND and so forth! And then When I restarted the computer IT WORKED EXTREMELY FAST!

To make sure it really booted from the USB I took my 4GB Flash card to a friend’s house and he had the exact same model computer but he was still using Windows 98 SE! I once again made changes to his BIOS setting in order to boot from USB first and OH my god I was really running Windows 2000 Professional!

And it just worked extremely fast that I even managed to format his real hard drive from within windows since it was running from the USB Drive!

Of course my 4GB Flash Card got damaged after 4 days of this type of use since the card isn’t designed for that type of use! But the message here is that because it's no longer an OLD FASHION HARD DRIVE WITH A SPINNING CD INSIDE IT’S GUARANTEED TO WORK FASTER AND BETTER WITH SSD

SSD IS BETTER!

HDD IS OLD!

Allocation Unit Size is Important

Allocation Unit Sizeshould be taken very seriously in order to Prevent Computer Problems of all sorts, such as Speed Performance, Hard Disk Damage, Loss of files and etc... You see when you format a partition it normally formats it with a default allocation unit size that can be a good thing but it can also be a bad thing.

It's a good thing because when you format the drive with the NTFS files system the default allocation unit size is 4096 bytes which is equal to 4 kilobytes. That very simply means that when you install programs or download any type of data to the computer, the hard disk of the computer will not be very full very quickly.

But unfortunately its a bad thing as well because the files are so physically small since they are running on a Small Allocation Unit Size Partition that the drive will physically be getting fragmented allot more quickly and frequently. The computer will begin to run allot slower all the time.

Now if you format a partition with a Higher Allocati…

exFAT for Windows XP

I respect the exFAT file system so much that I personnaly nicknamed it "DA Extremely Fast File System"

In the Honorable, Long Lasting and Reliable Windows XP, exFAT is available for update download and instalation!

I have formatted all of my USB Flash cards into the exFAT file system cause I know that all the operating systems from XP and above will understand it!

One of my friends has XP and when I plugged in my USB (exFAT formatted) it poped up and it said that I should format my USB! In order to use exFAT for Windows XP all I had to do was download an exFAT update(KB955704) from microsoft!

Although exFAT is designed for USB(removable disks), I risk using it on my second internal Hard Disk for all my web browsing(Temporary Internet Files) and downloads!

Install the following update in order to add support for the exFAT file system format on your computer using Windows XP!

If you are using Microsoft Windows XP Home, Proffesional and/or Media Center and if you l…
