In Optional and Live Tuner (orange frame) you get to more interesting functions. The hibernation status enables you not to shut down your computer, but to keep it in standby or sleep mode. Due to occurring errors and the fact that the power consumption and hard drive usage does not go back to null, this hibernation mode is not frequently used. However, there are several GB by default reserved on your drive for this. With a click on disable you can free this space again.
In real time the new Live Tuner pools all available resources in exactly those places where they are urgently needed. Existing processor cores, Windows® priorities and assigned usages of applications are customized, in order to ensure a trouble-free work flow. The resource-saving Live Tuner runs in the background – just a mouse click away. Just move the slider in the on-position and the Live Tuner will do its work.
Update backups serve the purpose to recover an older (maybe better) state of the operating system in case problems occur. If you also for example create backups of your system, then these backups are unnecessary. In this case please use the “symbol” on the right, next to the text.,
