Boost Your PC Speed by Using SSD

In short you can explain an SSD (Solid State Drive) as modern HDD (Hard Disk Drive). What's the difference then? Maybe the functions are almost same but there are some big differences between the two. Go through the post to clear the concept . . .

What's an SSD A solid state drive or SSD is a storage device that uses non volatile flash memory along with necessary controller and chipset to store the data. It's somewhat like RAM, but unlike RAM it can store data for a long period of time.

Do you ever rely on Windows Search to find files/ folders. To be honest - I don't! The search capacity of Windows XP is poor. Windows 7 users might have a better experience. But it's really difficult to find something on Windows 8. Because your drives are not automatically indexed by Windows 8! 



More than 2 years ago (March 27, 2012), I discussed about Everything Search - a third party search tool for Windows. This tool is awesome to find something on your PC. 


Next year (February 15, 2013), I wrote about how to index drives to search files faster in Windows 8


And today (Ocrober 7, 2014), I'm gonna share another search tool with you. It's HDDB - Hard Disk DataBase. It's almost similar to Everything Search except few changes.
