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.
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.
