Outlook + SSD = problems : is this still a fact?

Regarding issues a couple years ago with SSD's causing problems in Outlook 2007.

Is this still an issue, or has a 2007 upgrade fixed it? Will Outlook 2010 (released since the problems were reported) have the same problem?

I have an Intel X25-M 160GB on order and have an Office 2010 license.

The SSD/Outlook freeze/stuttering issue is not a problem with Windows 7 or with Vista SP2.

If you're still using XP, you can eliminate the issue by disabling prefetching for that drive.

I have XP sp3 and will probably upgrade in 6-12 months.
No word on whether Outlook 2010 is any different?
How do I disable prefetching - please provide link or quick instruction?

Many thanks for help.

The issue is improved with the cumulative update from Feb 2009 but it's unlikely o be hugely different due to the way in which outlook reads/writes data to local stores.

It's a well documented issue here: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/940226

Veeam and MySQL: How to Perform Backup & Recovery

MySQL and the MariaDB variant are among the most used databases in Linux environments, and many critical applications support their data on them. Watch this recorded webinar to find out how Veeam Backup & Replication allows you to get consistent backups of MySQL databases.

XP with SP3 should be okay as long as you have the Office 2007 service packs installed.

Together these provide all the fixes Microsoft has released relative to this issue, and should give you reasonable performance with Outlook.

How to disable Prefetch.

1. run "regedit";
2. goto [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session Manager\Memory Management\PrefetchParameters\EnablePrefetcher];
3. Set the value to 0
4. reboot.
