Disable ' save the last access date of a file


Every time a file is accessed on the hard drive by Windows, the NTFS file management system saves the last access date of a file even if no changes have taken place. Let’s see how to disable this recording that slows down system performance.

For this, make Windows+R, enter CMD and press Entry.

Enter the command:

fsutil behavior set disablelastaccess 1

and validate by Entry.

Commande DOS : fsutil behavior set disablelastaccess 1
DOS command: fsutil behavior set disablelastaccess 1

It’s simple, right?

Note: to reactivate the registration of the date of last access of a file, enter a 0 in place of the 1 in the DOS command execution window.
