Re: SSD or HDD

Richdog: Thanks for telling me that. I mainly just saw the final words.

I also didn't actually mean it to be a bibliography, just giving these links in case anybody also wanted to say something.

General: I also agree with Leomas, just didn't add in the answer. As you can see, I had to quickly change to something else, and the post has a kind of abrupt end.

Also, sorry about stopping the SSD post, and not defragmenting SSDs. I just opened Markarina's link and discovered it had everything I was going to write.

Re: SSD or HDD

Thank you for all these instructive infos.

SSD vs SSHD:
since I only want the OS on the SSD, I don't need a 1TB drive and since I want it for speed, I will chose SSD.

But, starting to read more about it, it seems now that there will be quite of work to set it all up correctly, like moving the Users and the Temp files (OS and others) to the HDD and I am not sure I'll be up to it ...

Re: SSD or HDD

At home I use SSD for boot drive, and HDD for data. Bought two for raid but gave up on that - motherboard just didn't want it. Combo works really well. System often boots before my monitors have stopped displaying their splash screen. Ubuntu here. At work I have SSD only on Windows 7, and it makes a good job of making a crappy OS look fast. I would honestly recommend it, but take backups seriously if you put data on it. I considered SSD for my NAS drive to make it quiet, but instead hid it in a closet...

I think that's pretty user friendly to. But, I must be missing something here because can't you just use a backup program like Acronis, get an image, and reimage.

Also, if you are going the SSD route, just make sure you turn off defragmentation. I believe Windows still keeps it on, so you need to switch off the scheduled one.

Why are you bumping a 6 year old thread to tell us how fast your SSD is?
