    Can system restore be configured to save restore points on a second drive? Nikkisixx, you may not have two drives, but that will be my eventual config: SSD for windows and other programs that will fit, a magnetic HD in the bay for everything else.

    No worries, that will be my setup soon as well. I'm interested in the answer too.

    Why not you install Intel SSD Toolbox too. It helps a lot in checking your SSD and running Trim manually.

    Here's the latest version: Intel Toolbox 1.30

    This is great info, thanks Les. My Intel SSD has been running great, but I have always had system restore disabled.
    I second the Intel SSD Toolbox. When running XP (I still haven't settled on one OS yet :p), I run it once per week and performance has been top notch.

    Disk defragmentation will also cause poor performance on an SSD.

    Yes you can. To manually config System Restore, go to Control Panel>System>Advanced System Settings>System Protection. From there, simply select the Drive that you wish to enable and click Configure. I also agree that Disk Defrag must be disabled for the SDD.
