comment How to force a remap of sectors reported in S.M.A.R.T C5 (Current Pending Sector Count)?
@MarkJeronimus Try using a file wiper, which will write all zeros (or all random data) to the file. That should get the drive to realize you don't care about those sectors anymore.

comment Cannot disable DPI scaling for Visual Studio 2012
The real reason, for those that live in the real world, is that every C# language feature starts at -100 points. Microsoft has finite resources, and a feature has to be worth it.

comment Should I enable or disable Prefetch/Superfetch with my new SSD?
Although the SuperFetch benefit will not be as large with SSD as with a HDD, you will still benefit by having SuperFetch on - even when using an SSD. It is also important to ensure it is on if you have both SSD and HDD (e.g. user profile, documents, Outlook archive, dozens of gigabytes of games on the spinning platter). Windows 7 mistakenly would turn off SuperFetch if the primary disk was solid state. Windows 8 got smarter about leaving SuperFetch on. And yes, SuperFetch is still useful for caching in RAM things stored on a SSD.
