Once you possess a solid state hard drive and want to integrate it into your system you will need to tweak the settings of Windows OS so as to take your SSD to its peak level of performance. Even if you have the best SSD of 2013 it will not work with its full capabilities without optimizing your operating system to create the proper enviroment for the SSD to operate at its optimal speed.
Yes there are many guides that teach you how to tweak/optimize your Windows OS to completely fit your SSD, but following and applying the instructions in these guides can really waste lots of time and efforts that a little tool like SSD-Fresh can save for you.
