    I recently acquired a new SSD and found that the wealth of set up information out there can be at times confusing. Depending on what you read you'll be told to switch off this and turn off that. Luckily for us Windows 8 and 8.1 are SSD 'aware' and should change their settings automatically as soon as an SSD is detected. Windows defrag for instance will no longer defrag the drive but will instead use Trim to keep the SSD optimised. So many guides tell you to turn this off which is pointless..
    Whilst searching for info around the net I came across a very handy webpage which lists all the tweaks for Windows 8 and 8.1. It's well worth a read if you own such a device as it contains a wealth of information.
    The page in question can be found here:
