Fast Solution to Slow Computers

  1. Less Fragmenting – As compared to storing data in a specific location on a magnetic disk, SSDs host one large memory station wherein all files are placed. The computer no longer needs to move a mechanized reader over a spinning disk to find particular files. When more data is saved unto a magnetic disk, there is a higher tendency for the data to become cluttered. This feature is absent from SDDs which means it takes less time to open programs and access information.
  2. Less Errors regarding “DLL, SYS and EXE files” – Due to less fragmenting, important boot files and “.exe,.dll and.sys” files are found faster. This results to a lower tendency for these files to go missing or to become corrupted when new programs and updates are installed. That translates into fewer malfunctions.
  3. Faster Boots – When a computer running an HDD is powered, the hard drive has to bring the disk to a particular speed before it can start reading anything from it. This is what makes boot times long. On top of getting the disk to spin, it then has to find the files on it. With SDDs, there is nothing to spin. This guarantees more constant and shorter wait times for the computer to start up.
  4. One less area of malfunction – When an HDD starts acting up, it could point to a problem with the disk or the reader. This means that even if the magnetic disk is fine, the mechanical parts of the reader might give in to wear and tear long before the disk starts to deteriorate. This does not happen with SDDs due to the storage facilities of this type of drive.
