Do you have a SATA disk drive in your computer? If so, you can squeeze a little more performance out of your hard disk. This speeds up the performance of your hard disk by enhancing write caching. However, if your computer is not connected to a battery backup and you loose power you have a increased risk for data loss or corruption. If you have a laptop your chances are data loss or corruption are dramatically less since your laptop battery will kick on if your power source is lost. Let''s get started:

  1. Click on the Start Button and key in Device Manager and hit Enter.

  2. Expand Disk Drives.

  3. Right click on your hard drive and select Properties.

  4. On the Policies tab, check Enable advanced performance.

  5. Hit OK and close Device Manager.
