Is it safe to disable SuperFetch? Yes! There is no risk of side effects if you decide to turn it off. Our recommendation is that if your system is running well, leave it on. If you have issues with high HDD usage, high RAM usage, or degraded performance during RAM-heavy activities, then try turning it off and see if it helps. If it does, keep it off. Otherwise, turn it back on.

Superfetch is a required service for utilizing ReadyBoost and, if you are using SSDs in the system, you don't need it. Disable it through the services tab in Administrative Management tools.

If, on the other hand, you DO need ReadyBoost, it should be configured on a USB flash drive, or a small--essentially disposable--secondary SSD (on which you can place the PageFile).
