Small Utility Helps Tweak SSD Performance

Looking for a way to tweak that new SSD? TechSpot plays host to a tool that gives you centralized access to all the popular SSD configuration points within the 32-bit and 64-bit versions of Windows XP, Windows Vista, and Windows 7. Users can tweak various options including Windows Defrag, the indexing service, prefetching, and more without the need to dig through various menus.

The SSD Tweak Utility only tweaks settings on the OS level, making it compatible with any SSD brand or model. Those of you who want to optimize the SDD but are unsure about what settings are ideal, the software provides an auto-tweak feature. For more advanced users, the tool recommends which settings to disable for optimal performance.

    I have been posting about this in the Storage forums, I used it , worked nice, no negative side effects. I spotted it at OCZ ssd support forums , under the WIN 7 tips and tweaks sub section.

    Windows XP SP3 on atom 1.6 n260 with 1gb ram and a 16gb SSD.

    I am getting this error even after a fresh restart.
    "The application has failed to initialize properly (0xc0000135)."

    Does anyone have any suggestions?

    I really need this app because the sandisk 16gb ssd in this machine is the slowest HD I have ever seen.
    I opened the netbook and got under the keyboard to the drive and it is just a small pcb with ram on it. I can not even put a normal HD because there is no room and the connector is not standard.

    If I could edit I'd change that spec to N270 processor.
