  1. Is it OK to use system restore on an SSD?


    I came across an old thread on here and elsewhere on the internet that discussed System Restore usage on an SSD. I am aware that Defragging shouldn't be done on SSD's as it will wear the SSD out a lot faster. I also know that Windows 10 is set up by default to Optimise the SSD but from what Ive read TRIM is used which is OK...until you enable System Restore. There was a discussion on here about this but there were differing opinions. Some said if you enabled System Restore on the SSD that standard Defrag was being used and not TRIM...others said it was TRIM.
    I see that System protection is disabled by default on windows 10.
    Is it OK to use system restore on the SSD drive or not?
    I like to use System restore as a first line of defence in case of problems but I don't want to use it if it Defrags the SSD as it does with standard hard drives and causes excessive wear on the drive. I would be interested to get information or other users opinions on this

    :)

    System Restore error

    The "mstdc.log" file is a transaction log file of Windows operating systems. Since it is a log file, it should not affect the performance of your system. Also, the error that you're getting with that log file is not connected to the System Restore error
    code you're seeing in the Event Viewer. If you want to make sure that System Restore is functioning properly, you can also disable and re-enable it. Please take note that by disabling System Restore, you lose your restore points. To disable and re-enable System
    Restore, follow these steps:

    • Access System Restore by searching using Cortana.
    • Click Configure.
    • Choose Disable system protection.
    • Click Apply, and the press OK.
    • Click Configure again.
    • Choose Turn on system protection.
    • Click Apply, and the press OK.
    • Click OK.

    If you do not encounter any issues while doing the steps above, it means that System Restore is working properly.

    Let us know how it goes.

  4. Is it OK to use system restore on an SSD?

    PC Build Steps

    Ok just because I like steps i am going to create some steps. Please give me the stamp of approval/disapproval
    • Install system in case
      • Remember to connect SSD and optical to same SATA ports on motherboard
    • Turn on PC
    • setup HDD
    • run blend test in prime95 for 30-60 min
      • run realtemp at the same time
    • While in Prime95 test
      • if CPU goes above 70c in RealTemp, I have a leaky CPU
      • if my system locks up or blue screens, there is an instability in the system somewhere
      • if my system does not lock up or blue screen, my CPU is not damaged and I am in the clear!
    What do you guys think??
