Workstation tweaks

In workstations, file indexing is not always what you want…

Disable in OS X:

launchctl unload -w /System/Library/LaunchDaemons/com.apple.metadata.mds.plist

Win 7

-> services.msc -> Windows Search Service -> stop + disable


Win 7, other special tweaks for special cases

  • system protection: off
  • powercfg /hibernate off
  • Pagfile.sys (manually set size & place)
