If you have a solid state hard drive (SSD)
I have read that you should not defrag a SSD, so the following settings seem appropriate.
If you have an SSD, under settings
- Under “Tasks Scheduling”, uncheck “Disk Optimization” (I actually disabled all the tasks; I take care of the other tasks myself)
- Under “Administrative Settings”, set “Idle Time Optimizer” to off
I am just posting this so others might benefit.
Why doesn't Norton Security detect, or ask the user if they are using a Sold State hard Drive when you are installing Norton Security? Or ask the user when configuring the two settings mentioned above?
As prices on SSDs continue to fall and grow in market share, Norton needs to address this issue.
I highly recommend upgrading from a traditional HD to a SSD. I bought a computer in 2009. The hard drive developed problems in 2012 and I replaced it with a SSD. The performance improvement is incredible. It went from taking over a minute to boot to less than 30 seconds. I think this upgrade will let me use the computer for a couple of more years before upgrading.
