Windows® 7 SSD
What is Solid State Drive in Microsoft Windows 7?
The solid state drive is a type of hard drive which is used instead of hard disk drive in modern computers. The SSD make use of a special kind of memory chip with a number of erasable, writable cells which could hold data even if the system id powered off. The Microsoft Windows 7 has made a number of improvements in the support for solid state drives. The new operating system is highly compatible with the SSD. With this operating system, a considerable increase was made in the read and write speed of SSDs. This lessens the redundant read-write cycles and automatically disables defragment which could reduce the lifespan of SSD. Its trim feature cut down the amount of data to be deleted, which in turn allows it to delete garbage data in advance. ATA commands are also used to increase the writing speed of SSD.
The Solid State Drive has some advantages as well as disadvantages in the Microsoft Windows 7 system. These are:
- Less power consumption
- High Portability
Less power consumption
The new Solid State Drive has been made with less power consumption in the Microsoft Windows 7 system. The drive always runs at much lower temperatures as compared to other traditional hard disk drives. This makes your system much quite and in most cases silent. This happens as the system does not require a fan with the working of this drive. This also avoids issues with your system like overheating as amount of heat produced is less and the battery power exists for a long time.
Increased portability is another advantage of Solid State Drive used in Microsoft Windows 7. The SSD could be made in smaller sizes than the traditional hard disk drives. This makes the SSD suitable for latest mobile computing applications used in your Microsoft Windows 7 system. New upcoming net books use the SSD as its standard storage medium. The SSD could be carried with you anywhere due to these features. The SSD is also made free of damages and could be easily installed in any system.
Although the SSD used in Microsoft Windows 7 has a number of advantages like less power consumption and high portability; it also includes some minor disadvantages. The SSDs might get with some failures and data could not be recovered in SSD after it failed once. You could not be able to use it in your old PC and could need to purchase new net books to make use of the SSD. The older PCs could get some compatibility and connection interface issues with the SSD. The Microsoft series is making a number of improvements to overcome all these drawbacks of the SSD.
