Windows SuperFetch is a technology in Windows Vista and onwards that is often misunderstood. I decided to delve into this technology to see what it is all about, and to dispel some of the myths surrounding this feature.

Whenever I have SuperFetch turned on I hear a consistent annoying noise from the hard drive while watching movies. I have noticed no noticeable speed ups from it. Just lots of noise. So you can say all you want about how much faster applications load, but having a tick tick tick noise while watching a movie really distracts from any advantages it has.
