Preparing for an SSD on Win8

3 posts in this topic

So I just bought my first SSD to replace my current Hard Disk, it's a Samsung 128GB 840 Pro which I've done some research on and should fit my needs really well. It should be arriving very soon so I've been reading up on what exactly I need to do to prepare for the SSD (stuff like turning AHCI on in the Bios) but I'm curious what I need to do once I've got it running on Windows 8 to keep it running well.

That's a slightly old guide I've come across and I'm not sure if any of those things are needed or a good idea for an SSD these days. I heard that Defrag in Windows 8 just runs the TRIM command so I'm guessing I need to keep that on?

Any help guys?
