Default Disabling Windows Pagefile & Hibernation to Reclaim SSD Space

With the storage space offered on traditional HDDs, SSDs can leave a bit to be desired. Making matters worse are the Windows hibernation mode and pagefile, responsible for hogging at least 8GB (22GB in my case) of your precious SSD space. We're taking a look at the caveats of disabling both, and discuss the fixes.

You can read our quick how-to on reclaiming storage space hogged by hibernation and the pagefile, then discuss it here!
