Hi I did a little bit of reading about Prepping my SSD for a clean WIN7 install: Here are the links: http://www.sevenforums.com/tutorials/91339-ssd-hdd-optimize-windows-reinstallation.html http://www.sevenforums.com/tutorials/113967-ssd-alignment.html http://www.paragon-software.com/home/partition-alignment/index.html So after reading about how I can "align" my SSD, it seems I HAVE to create an "aligned" partition to get the benefits and then install w7... I believe in my case I would create an aligned partition for the whole SSD instead of seperated partitions... The thing is I have to choose a number dividable by 4 and I'm not sure exactly which numbers to input... I do understand the walkthroughs I linked in the post here but I'm not certain about my numbers. Can you guys help me figure out the numbers ?? I have a Kingston 64 gb ssd. Windows says it has: 63,915,945,984 bytes ... So what numbers should I put in?
