We all know that Kingston is a great company, and we want to share with you 8 of their software hacks for 8 of their Kingston SD Drives. These tricks are only known by the pros!
-Be sure to set the disk as AHCI and not RAID.
-Set a firmware password on your drive so that no one can reset it without knowing what you have put in place.
-Formatting is an option, but only if you are going for maximum performance. If space doesn’t matter then choose FAT32 or NTFS because these formats will be best with compatibility when sharing files between Windows systems and Macintosh computers . -Don’t use all kinds of formatting options such as exFAT, APM (a proprietary Kingston format), HFS+, UDF etc., they might get deleted from future updates!

The disk as AHCI and not RAID. -Set a firmware password on your drive so that no one can reset it without knowing what you have put in place. -Formatting is an option, but only if you are going for maximum performance. If space doesn’t matter then choose FAT32 or NTFS because these formats will be best with compatibility when sharing files between Windows systems and Macintosh computers .-Don’t use all kinds of formatting options such as exFAT, APM (a proprietary Kingston format), HFS+, UDF etc., they might get deleted from future updates! Always store the drive for the operating system on a second partition.
-Turn off write caching to protect yourself from data corruption if your computer crashes or loses power, this will also make files read and written significantly faster as well! -Set up APM (a proprietary Kingston format) because it is more efficient when writing jobs to disk. It has less fragmentation plus higher performance with fewer seeks which means quicker access times. -Configure TRIM so that there won’t be any “garbage in space” eating away at your drive’s life expectancy. If you do not know how to set it up then check out our article here: Software Hacks For The Best Ssd Drives .
-When using an SSD, try not to use the Windows defragmentation tool. Solid State Drives typically lack any moving parts and do not have to be manipulated in order for data to read or write which makes them perfect for storing operating systems on, but this will still slow down your computer anyway! -Keep an eye on temperature levels because if they get too high then you risk damaging your drive.
-Use a hardware based encryption system like Kingston’s AES algorithm with FIPS 140-compliant modules that meet NIST standards for security and reliability.
Bullet Point: -Use a hardware based encryption system like Kingston’s AES algorithm with FIPS 140-compliant modules that meet NIST standards for security and reliability. Bullet Point: -Keep an eye on temperature levels because if they get too high then you risk damaging your drive. That concludes the article, thanks so much!

The new sentences are being written here because there isn’t enough space above due to the bulleted list format that we use on this page. There is no bullet point available with which they could be paired up with either, hence why it’s

– Begin writing a list with numbers and bullet points.
– This blog post will be broken up into three main sections: “Software Hacks for Kingston Ssd Drives”, “The first section,” and “The second section.” The process should work more or less like this: **This line starts off as a numbered item in the list, followed by some text that relates to it which you can either use what’s on your outline below or come up with new ideas based on whatever looks good at the time. You’ll then move down to another number and repeat until you’ve listed all items from the main idea (in this case Software Hacks) before
If you are working with a Veritas volume, the best command to find out how much free space is available on the disk is “vxprint -h” followed by ”
s vgname” where “vgname” is the name of your volume group.
The first section:
-Diskscanner -Disk Utilization Report -iostat (Linux/Unix) or iosrvadm (AIX)
-Vxprint -h followed by s vgname (see above for an example.) This will reveal how much free space is available on the disk, and what percentage of it are in use. Running this command from a Veritas Logical Volume Manager (LVM)/Volume Group perspective also shows which logical volumes have reached their threshold to cause LVM to automatically grow them; these thresholds can be changed with lvmconfig if need be.
-VG Check -vgname will show which logical volumes are in the volume group and how much space is available on each; moreover, it can be a great way to identify when LVM has grown any of them automatically (again, these thresholds can be changed with lvmconfig).
-The “ls” command followed by “-s” shows the size of files within directories: this output can help determine what percentage of your disk storage is being used for particular types of data (e.g., if you’re using mostly NTFS drives then compare the sizes listed under “/dev/hd*”). Running “stat /usr/” will list every file along with its corresponding size that’s taking up space on your Linux partition. Running “stat -c %s” will list the size of each file according to percentage.
-Performing a df (disk free) command can help identify which partitions are taking up space on your Linux partition, and how much is available for new files/directories. A long running process or one that actively consumes disk storage might be responsible for this hardware fragmentation; however, it could also be because there’s not enough room left in the filesystem (e.g., if you have too many large files).
-A du -h /path/* command will show all directories within “/path/” along with their corresponding sizes, followed by total: this output helps determine what folders take up most of your hard drive’s storage space while also showing the total size of all files and folders within “/path/” -The tree command, combined with -d option (directory), will show a directory’s content in an easy to read format: this output is great for visualizing what directories are taking up hard drive space. Tree can be used without the -d option to display a user’s file system hierarchy from a specific location such as your home directory or current working environment -If you’re looking for more information about any process that has been running on your CPU or GPU recently then top should help identify it quickly. Top displays live readings of CPU shares usage, memory consumption by processes, IO wait times and much more; plus it supports remote
