I just bought the Z930-108 and I found on the SDD(128GB) a partition called hibernation, but at the normal system disk there is also a hiberfile.sys.
1) Is there the same function for both?
2) Is the hibernation partition not working?
3) can the hibernation partition be incorparated into the system partition to have more space available?
4) would the deletion of the hibernation partition invalidate the recovery process using the SSD partition?
As far as I know the hibernation partition is used by Windows system and it needs this partition to wake up the notebook from hibernation mode much faster than usual…
I thought hiberfil.sys had taken the place of suspend to disk but it seems that this hibernation partition provides much better performance. I would not recommend deleting this partition if you want hibernate the notebook.
Thanks! I also looked around a bit. The partition is related to the Intel rapid start technology. For the Toshiba laptops it is the Hi-speed start mode. Indeed, it is faster than the hibernation function (and file).
If you have setup and HDD/bios password than using the hibernation, coming back will be blocked and you have to use the password.
If you use the hi-speed start, it jumps over the hdd/bios password dialog and goes directly to the window logon.
So the choice has to be made for speed versus security.
