RapidBoot with SSD?

[ Edited ]

Is these feature really needed with an mSata SSD installed? Version 1.12 apparently turns on (or tries to turn on) the Superfetch function on my SSD according to the Intel SSD Toolbox. I had ReadyBoost turned off on all drives and the modules are not even installed on my system. I checked in computer services and the service is set to disabled so I'm not sure why the Intel SSD Toolbox application told me it was enabled, but it wasn't running! I could have the tool turn off the function on the SSD, but every time I rebooted the warning message came back. The only way I could stop this behavior was to uninstall RapidBoot 1.12 (1.11 did not have this behavior).
 
BTW, how can I get the previous copy of RapidBoot 1.11?


Update: I restored the previous version from one of my backups. I cleaned up the Windows\PreFetch directory and then reinstalled RapidBoot 1.12. The problem was no longer present. Smiley Happy

Re: RapidBoot with SSD?

That is for RapidDrive. I wanted to find the relevance of RapidBoot on an SSD. Thanks anyway.

I am so glad I don't have a car. Much less problems with a bicycle Smiley Wink

Seriously?  You have never used a SSD drive in a desktop or notebook computer?

This person tested it and found no difference with or without Rapidboot on an SSD system:

I disabled my RapidBoot a while ago.


(I have SSWB  (Super Slow Warm Boot) thanks to "Thinkvantage Active Protection System Sensor Diagnostics" )

Re: RapidBoot with SSD?

Thank you for the additional link! I cleaned up the Windows\PreFetch directory and let Windows rebuild it without RapidBood installed. I then reinstalled RapidBoot 1.12 and the problem that the Intel SSD Toolbox was reporting was gone. I believe that the issue was that I had originally just cloned the SSD from the original HDD and the PreFetch stuff from Windows in that configuration was still there. Silly me for not noticing.
 
I ran some timings with and without RapidBoot 1.12 installed:
 
1. Timings wi/o RapidBoot installed:  12 secs to Welcome Screen; 52 seconds to Desktop
2. Timings with RapidBoot Installed:  12 secs to Welcome Screen: 38 seconds to Desktop
 
This would seem to indicate that even though I have my boot drive on the SSD, there is still some improvement in my configuration. The following is the description of RapidBoot:
------------------------------------
RapidBoot is a utility that reduces the operating system boot time of ThinkPads running Windows 7. A new service called HyperW7Svc is installed and set to automatic start.
The following services are modified after the installation of Lenovo’s RapidBoot application.
Distributed Link Tracking Client is changed from Automatic to Automatic (delayed start)
IP Helper is changed from Automatic to Automatic (Delayed start)
Program Computability Assistance Service is changed from Automatic to Automatic (Delayed start)
Windows Search is changed from Automatic to Disabled.

RapidBoot disables Windows Search? I use Windows Search from time to time. (I haven't installed RapidBoot yet.)
