I just followed the steps in the link below to perk up my 6 year old Intel 120 that I just put into my Acer Mini.  Very good results, it reduced boot and shut down time by at the very least in 1/2.  Have not tested programs yet but my favorite game now comes up much faster.  Doing the little things made a big difference, it will also reduce wear and tear on the drive.

Some of the suggestions are ok, but one I really would not suggest to do is disable system restore.  That can save your bacon sometimes, and it really does not slow the SSD access. As far as taking drive space, you can set the restore to smaller amount of space reserved for it. IMHO, that should not be a factor. The price difference between a  250gig and (for example) 500gig is not so great as to warrant purchasing a drive that is so small in storage that you have to delete System Restore.

Mason great video! 

 

I went all the extra steps that were in my post only because this was the C: drive out of my 6 year old tower.  I put it into a older Acer mini with 1.6 chip and 2 g ram which also piped the sata from 600 down to 300.  It needed all the tweaks it could get, it did make a decent difference.
