Many people who have SSD’s configure windows to reduce the size of or move the location of the pagefile and remove the hiberfil file by disabling hibernate. With systems that have large amounts of system memory this will restore a significant amount of storage space to your SSD (more so on a Win 7 machine). With Windows 8 MS has added another purpose to the hiberfil file storing the kernel and drivers to enable Fast Startup. The common practice of disabling hibernate to delete the hiberfil file will also disable fast startup. I think that there are benefits to not using fast statrup (fresh running drivers etc.). So on a system using an SSD and fast startup disabled how much longer will it take for the system to boot up? In reading some posts on other forums some people state that their system boots faster with it off some state that it is faster with it on. I haven’t tested the two to see if there is a difference between the two. But my gut tells me that on an SSD the difference is negligible and it is better to have it disabled any ways. Opinions?
