Ssd

Good day computer geeks! My brother told me that he's planning to "upgrade" our current drive (HDD) to SSD before I give my go signal I just wanted to know first the advantages/disadvantages between SSD and HDD.

Re: Ssd

I would strongly recommend using an HDD side-by-side with an SSD. That way you can put permanent files (Windows + software) on the SSD, and everything else on the HDD, thus avoiding too many writes to the SSD.

Re: Ssd

Habibjp:
That's one great how-to that needs to be written and posted here: How To set Windows up to minimize writes to the boot drive. My solution is using the SSD as the boot disk and using a separate HDD (1.5TB) for all other data. This includes pagefile.sys, Temporary Internet Files, application data, and anything else I can relocate to the data drive. There are still a lot of log files and other junk I haven't found yet.
